John McCain Thinks You are Stupid

TPM wraps it all up:

The McCain campaign apparently thinks you don’t have a very long memory — or much regard for the truth. It has just released what it’s billing as a new ad attacking Obama on Iran — even though the McCain camp already put out the same ad back in August, only to see it widely exposed as deeply dishonest.

I heard Hugh Hewitt play the ad this afternoon, claiming that French President Sarkozy had called Obama’s stance on Iran ‘immature,’ which I had read earlier (and is still there) on memeorandum.  But there is a little problem:

The remarks attributed by the newspaper Haaretz to the president of the French Republic concerning Sen. Obama’s positions on Iran are groundless. To the contrary, the in-depth discussions between the president of the Republic and Sen. Obama on Iran during their meeting in Paris in July demonstrated a broad convergence of views on this issue. President Sarkozy and Sen. Obama agree to oppose Iran’s development of a military nuclear capability.

Thankfully, I have already voted and cannot be swayed by McCain’s insult.

  1. Nice post. What I can’t get over is that there are still many people who actually believe the lies that come from McCain. Some of what he says has merit, but very little compared to the overwhelming flood of false information, vindictive and name calling his campaign has issued and continues to insult voters with.

  2. I think that McCain — and his reletively new friends in talk radio and the internets — are trying to find one theme that will stick. Unfortunately for them, each day produces another outrage that is tamped down within hours.

    It’s really a shame. There was a day — very long ago — that I respect McCain. That respect ended one day in late August, 2005.
