First, we can complain that the McCain camp is lying but it doesn't matter. The people supporting Palin-McCain don't care if they're lying. The people supporting Palin-McCain are Christians after all.
The people likely to support Palin-McCain don't seem to know enough to differentiate between false information and truth. Ms. Mooseburger is a woman after all and she sure is neat. That's all they need to know.
So, we need to take lying off the table as a point of argument. With that, here's the new line of attack from the republicans, being financed by folks like T. Boone Pickens.
WaPo: A new group financed by a Texas billionaire and organized by some of the same political operatives and donors behind the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth campaign against Sen. John F. Kerry in 2004 plans to begin running television ads attacking Barack Obama, a signal that outside groups may play a larger role than anticipated in the closing days of the presidential race.Unions plan to fire back.
The American Issues Project has amassed a multimillion-dollar fund, and the group is putting the final touches on an eleventh-hour campaign targeting the Democratic presidential nominee, sources said.
"We expect to be doing both issues and express advocacy between now and November and beyond," said Christian Pinkston, a spokesman for the group.
The effort could mark a sharp turn in what has been an unusually quiet year for outside political groups. At this point in 2004, such groups had already spent about $100 million dollars on television commercials attacking Kerry (D-Mass.) and President Bush, but they have devoted $8 million to ads so far in this election cycle.
WaPo: The resurgence on the right appears as though it will not go unanswered. The Service Employees International Union is set to unveil a multimillion-dollar television campaign on Monday, and other liberal and Democratic-aligned groups are rushing to establish financing for efforts over the final weeks of the campaign.
