The CNN headline said: “Rove: McCain Went ‘Too Far’ in Ads.”
(I had to read it several times, thinking there must be something wrong with my eyes.)
The latest lie from the McCain-Palin Lie Machine is a Spanish language ad that calls Barack Obama responsible for the nation’s failure to overhaul our immigration laws.
What do you think their next big lie will be?
Remember, this is a campaign that even Karl Rove has said has gone “too far.”
Here are some likely possibilities. Please feel free to add your own.
Obama created AIDS. TV ad showing AIDS victims in Africa. Voiceover tying Barack Obama to Kenya. Footage of Obama’s Kenyan ancestors and relatives. Footage of AIDS victims in Africa. Voiceover of AIDS statistics in Africa. Footage of Obama with gay rights activists. Voiceover of Obama calling for end to discrimination based on sexual orientation. Footage of white people with AIDS. Footage of Obama laughing.
Obama cost America the Vietnam War. TV ad showing former Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers with voiceover of the Obama-Ayers connection. Footage of wounded U.S. soldiers in Vietnam. Footage of the SDS/Weatherman in 1968-1969. More footage of wounded U.S. soldiers in Vietnam. Footage of bombing of the U.S. Capitol in 1971. Footage of Barack Obama in U.S. Capitol. Footage from the Sixties of Ayers calling for end to Vietnam War. Footage of Obama calling for end to the Iraq War. Footage of helicopters fleeing Saigon in 1975. More footage of wounded U.S. soldiers in Vietnam. Footage of POW John McCain in Hanoi prison. Footage of Obama laughing.
Obama is a Jew. (To be shown in selected counties in Missouri, Idaho, Montana, and Southern California). TV ad showing Obama’s African relatives with traditional head covering (tagiyah). Footage of Jews wearing traditional head covering (yarmulke). Footage of Barack Obama’s face morphing easily into the face of Jerry Lewis (Levitch).
Okay, your turn.
