John McCain doesn't care if your Kindergartner is molested

What other conclusion can I come to, as the McCain campaign releases this ad:

Here is the video of the Ad.


In essence, Obama supported "age appropriate" sex-education for children as a means of teaching them what was proper or inproper touching, as well as to protect them against pedophiles, his campaign has said. Used in the context of the McCain campaign ad, however, Obama's stance becomes another one of those cultural issues that seems designed to alienate the Illinois Democrat from more socially moderate voters.

And very quickly, the Obama campaign came out with a hard hitting response, pointing to a series of education accomplishments made by Obama, and calling McCain "perverse" for the latest attack.

"It is shameful and downright perverse for the McCain campaign to use a bill that was written to protect young children from sexual predators as a recycled and discredited political attack against a father of two young girls - a position that his friend Mitt Romney also holds. Last week, John McCain told Time magazine he couldn't define what honor was. Now we know why," said Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton.

The Republicans will do anything to win.

They took an Obama initiative designed to protect children and turned it completely around to make it seem as though he supported sex for 5 year olds.

When politics gets this bad... it's a sign of a dying nation IMO.

Clearly they know they can't win on the issues, so they are running a campaign exclusively desiged to pull at heartstrings... they are also playing identity politics.

It just reinforces my strong belief (and I have believed this for years) that issues don't matter to the gullible, uneducated, poorly informed American voter. Race, ideology, religion, culture, identity politics etc, are much more important to these people.

It is proven time and time again.
And the McCain folks understand all this.... that's why they are going this route.

Ironically... wasn't it McCain who called for a clean campaign not too long ago????
