It says something about the kind of campaign you’re running when Karl Rove, the king of dirty campaigns, says that you’ve gone too far with some of your ads, as is the case on Sunday:
“McCain has gone in some of his ads — similarly gone one step too far,” he told Fox News, “and sort of attributing to Obama things that are, you know, beyond the ‘100 percent truth’ test.”
As I said before, when a noted smear merchant like Karl Rove says you’ve gone too far with your negative attack ads, it speaks volumes about just how despicable your campaign ads have become. Instead of the “Straight Talk Express,” it’s more like the “Smear Ad Express,” and John McCain ought to be ashamed of the kind of campaign he’s running, a campaign based on mudslinging and lies as opposed to the issues folks care about.
Then again, if I were John McCain and I knew I couldn’t win an honest debate on the issues, I suppose I’d go negative too…
