Terrorists, Racists, and Crooks, oh my!

I got an email from the Obama campaign, touting the 13 minutes of slander to be released today. Of course, it ends with "forward this to everyone you know" because a lie not spread by the Obama faithful is like a day without sunshine...

I won't inflict the whole thing on you - only the pertinent paragraph, and my response.

From David Plouffe: "In that crisis, John McCain and his political patron, Charles Keating, played central roles that ultimately landed Keating in jail for fraud and McCain in front of the Senate Ethics Committee. The McCain campaign has tried to avoid talking about the scandal, but with so many parallels to the current crisis, McCain's Keating history is relevant and voters deserve to know the facts -- and see for themselves the pattern of poor judgment by John McCain."

Oh do let's talk about poor judgment!

Obama's relationship with Bill Ayres is causing him to try to divert attention, by baseless attacks against John McCain. Obama is reaching back to the Keating 5 - conveniently forgetting that McCain was ABSOLVED FROM ANY WRONGDOING. Let me repeat that - he was shown to be completely free of involvement in that scandal. It is not his fault that his name was wrongfully linked for a short time to those who were.

The same can't be said for Obama, who has a closet full of shady acquaintances, from Ayres, to Reverend Wright, to Rezko and on and on... Terrorists, racists, and crooks, oh my! Talk about a record of poor judgment that stretches back over 20 years.

The difference between Palin's attacks on Obama over the weekend and his on McCain is that the GOP haven't said anything that is false!
