Grasping McCain campaign

Proving that the John McCain campaign is the same as Bush-Cheney-Rove in negative nonsense, a new campaign ad from the Republican has attacked Barack Obama’s selection of Joe Biden as his running mate. Why? Apparently because he’s not Hillary Clinton.

You have to hand it to McCain’s campaign for their sheer chutzpah in this. They use footage of Hillary criticising Barack, and yet the commercial somehow failed to mention that McCain opposes the change that Both Hillary and Barack champion. Funny, that. It’s ironic the campaign should do this, considering McCain himself praised Biden as a "wise selection"—or is John McCain not in control of his own campaign?

Obviously, McCain would have released an attack ad no matter who Barack had selected. Negative campaigning is apparently all they know how to do. But America deserves better than four more years of the same as Bush-Cheney. Obama-Biden will deliver that change. McCain can’t.
