McCain ad links Obama to corruption
Washington Times ^ | Tuesday, September 23, 2008 | Christina Bellantoni and Stephen Dinan

John McCain lashed out Monday at Barack Obama's political pedigree, tying his rival to notorious Chicago machine politics as the Republican struggled to reclaim the advantage that slipped to Mr. Obama as the Wall Street mess has unfolded.

In a new ad, Mr. McCain accuses his Democratic opponent of running the same "corrupt Chicago political machine" as convicted felon and Obama patron Tony Rezko and the Daley family, which controls Chicago politics.

Mr. McCain's campaign said they are raising the corruption issue because the press has failed to do so.

"Senator Obama very directly has introduced the issue of associations in this campaign, I think, raising fundamentally that you can tell something about people by the company they keep," top McCain aide Steve Schmidt told reporters.

New Study shows Media full of it

Now that Obama is trailing in Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Missouri and stuck in a dead heat in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, with campaign staff rapidly evacuating from North Dakota -- time for the liberal media . . . oops, sorry, the totally 'impartial' and 'objective' media to reach for their standby excuse for why their loser is losing: Racism!

To prop up the fading celebrity, the media all summer had tried playing the class warfare card, urging voters to vote Obama because Obama owns only one mansion, whereas Cindy McCain has several homes. And that Obama owns just one car but John McCain has several, making Obama prepared to lead! Obama spent millions on attack ads accusing McCain of being rich and successful, and (shockingly!) McCain's poll numbers went up.

Sooooo, out comes this "study" purporting to show that the reason an empty-suit, tax-raising, rogue-state/terrorist-coddling, zero accomplishment, Jeremiah Wright disciple and effete Harvard elitist pal of Ayers, Rezko, Freddie and Fannie is doing so poorly in polls is because of his skin color. Over 96 percent of blacks support Obama, so the media conclude this has nothing to do with skin color. It's only non-blacks who are the 'racists'.

"Barack Obama's race could be the deciding factor if the presidential battle remains a dead heat on Election Day, according to an Associated Press poll released in conjunction with Stanford University," the WSJ reports. They polled 2,227 adults, asked them a series of stupid questions, and, on the basis that only 7 out of 10 Democrats say they support Obama, Standford University and the AP concluded that "many white Americans" are racists. Just 59% of Hillary Clinton's "primary voters say they will vote for Obama," so the remaining 41% are 'racists'. Seventeen percent say they're voting McCain -- making them Bull Conner-loving slavery revivalists.

Independent 'swing voters' are also guilty of 'racism', since a good chunk of them aren't supporting Obama, according to the 'study'.

The "study" also concluded that Republicans not backing Obama are 'racists', too, because they're not backing Obama. But the studiers note that GOP voters aren't the problem since studies show Republicans don't normally back Democrats anyway, which does wonders to the premise of this idiotic 'study'.

"Not all whites are prejudiced," the AP notes charitably, "indeed more whites say good things about blacks than say bad things, the poll shows." But! Since 40 percent of whites in the poll "used at least one negative adjective about blacks," clearly 40 percent of all white Americans want to revive slavery. The negative adjectives include "'lazy,' 'violent,' or responsible for their own troubles." The music industry and Hollywood constantly portray blacks as lazy, violent, or responsible for their own troubles, so it's a real mystery where these ideas come from.

But, not so fast! Another intensive study, just released, reaches the opposite conclusion. "White America's alleged deep-seated racism appeared not to be a problem for Gen. Colin Powell, who, unlike Obama, is actually black," said the study's author, "JohnHuang2", who conducted the study by entering key words and dates into Google. By Googling "NPR," "1995," and "Powell," according to this study, you get this: "A series of polls conducted over the past month show strong support for Colin Powell running as a Republican in a two-man race against President Clinton . . ." -- this was back in the fall of 1995, when Powell was thinking about running for president. The Washington Post reported at the time that "a late August poll for Newsweek magazine by Princeton Survey Research . . . shows that as the GOP nominee, Powell would defeat President Clinton by a decisive 51 percent to 41 percent. In the poll, no other Republican nominee, including Dole [who's white!], defeats the Democratic incumbent." JohnHuang2's landmark study also unearthed headlines like, "Colin Powell Puts Whites at Ease," from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, dated Sept. 15, 1995 -- when America was supposedly even more 'racist', since that was over 12 years before the coming of "The One We've Been Waiting For," B. Hussein, who injected race into the campaign in the first place.

A year ago, either you'd back Hillary or you're a grunting Neanderthal misogynist -- so are liberals knuckle-draggers now that they've opted for the all-male ticket while going bananas dumping on the gal governor, Sarah Palin? After playing the religion card, the bimbo card, the dominatrix card, the Gov. Pontius Pilate/madrightwingextremistwhofakedherpregnancy card and watching it all boomerang, the limping identity politics commissars limp into the Twilight Zone that Sarah's star will soon 'fade'. People will get tired of her authentic charm! According to the New York Times, her star has already 'faded'. In fact, at a rally Sunday, 60,000 rapturous Floridians came out to see this "fading" phenomenon. In sweltering weather. To see the next Vice President of the United States. Poor libbies.

Anyway, that's...
My Two Cents...

"Mr. McCain's campaign said they are raising the corruption issue because the press has failed to do so."

I hope he keeps it up as well. The media is really after him and Palin. I just saw another hit piece 5 minutes ago on CNN. They are trying to link McCain’s son to a Las Vegas bank failure. I think we need to investigate the MSM which is trying to influence this election. It would cost Obama millions if he were to try to buy this kind of air time.

“I think we need to investigate the MSM which is trying to influence this election. “

Someone should file a class-action suit for Journalistic malpractice.

You have to have some kind of credentials to be a member of the Press, don’t you?

Aren’t there some kind of standards which they must meet to become members of the Press?

I am sure they have violated those standards for years. The cost damages could be billions.
