(Think Progress)   McCain campaign is now claiming that Barack Obama will represent a third term for George Bush, a claim so deranged and ludicrous that not even Douchebag of Liberty Bob Novak is buying it   (thinkprogress.org) divider line 271

McCain has set a goal of winning support from the bottom up.
He figures if he can convince the most ignorant people in America to support him others will follow.

Obama is trying to work from the top down by getting the support of smart people and hoping others will follow.

The only question remaining is, which are there more of in America?
Intelligent educated people who think for themselves, or mindless morons with attention spans that can barely make it through a 30 second sound bite and who believe everything sent to them in an email?

It's the classic Rove strategy of projecting your weaknesses onto your opponent. Stay tuned next week when the GOP claims Obama isn't electable because he's an old white guy with a history of melanoma.

We must feel bad that McBush is old, and project our empathy unto our voting.

Seriously though, this shiat won't stand the light for long enough to do anything. Obama will blow it out of the water like everything else that's come his way. He's pretty damn good about stopping BushCo bullshiat.

So the internet was invented in 2005?

Character smears will always work so long as they play on the pre-existing notions the public has about the person or his demographic. the idea that john mccain is too old will get a lot of traction even if he's the healthiest 71 year old on earth. and the idea that Barack Obama hates america will never die because he has a foreign name and dark skin, even though Obama is a model of patriotic sacrifice.

No but guess what came of age in 2005? That's right, blogs. Why do you think the Dems won in 2006 and Obama won the nomination?

Maybe a 2nd term for jimmy carter, but Bush?

I don't know. 10% of the country still thinks he's a sekrit Muslim. You get enough McCainDemocrat types who are looking for any excuse and you can sway enough voters to win an additional state or two.

I mean they've already tried to push:

* Horrible public speaker (while McCain stumbles uncomfortably through his speeches).

* Ignorant and gaffe prone (while McCain has to have Joe Lieberman whisper in is ear about Sunni and Shia Muslims).

* Not humble enough (While McCain has felt it was his destiny to be president since he was a POW).

* Out of touch elitist (While McCain flies to one of his 8 houses in his wife's jet).

Hell, after seeing that Mark Penn tried to get the Clintons to push the "He's not an American" crap, I wouldn't be surprised to see MCain just get up on stage with a picture of Saddam and say,

"My friends, you know who ELSE was named Hussein?"

Similarities between Bush and Obama:

Arrogance
Both were former users of cocaine
Neither had enough experience when elected
Both surround themselves with sycophants
Neither cares about the lower classes

There's more similarities between Bush and Obama personality-wise than there are between Bush and McCain.

Holy sweet mother of god, McCain has lost it. His campaign, much like him, is bonkers.

Unfortunately, Americans are so farking goddamn stupid, they're going to elect McCain anyway. Don't believe me? Why not -- you read Fark threads and yet still understimate the stupidity of the American public?

My kingdom for a decent candidate. All the mudslinging in the world against each other and they forget that Congress hasn't done anything to improve the economy either. Their approval rating is at it's lowest point in history. (Funny, since 3 Senators were the leading candidates for President).

So basically we're using the cow pies to build the barn.

The reason Congress has such low approval ratings is something like "My 2 senators and my representative could probably get something done if everyone else in Congress wouldn't stop them!"

McCain policy adviser is named Douglas Holtz-Eakin.

I was just told in this post that liberals use "politically correct hyphens" which leads me to suspect that this guy is a liberal plant trying to undermine Senator McCain's credibility.

The worst thing Bush did to the economy is massively increase the size of the federal government. From that perspective, Obama, by his own policies, will be just like Bush. The change we can believe in is that Obama will increase taxes to "pay for it." (Even though tax increases have proven to result in less revenue for the government.

Big Government = Big Government

Look, I've got danlpoon's alt (McCainDemocrat) on "ignore".

That doesn't help when about eight people decide to quote him. Please, people, don't feed the troll. And don't quote him, or TruBluBaptist, or skookum, or any of the other notorious trolls that reside on the Politics tab.

OK, quote Sunny_Ray, because he's taken trolling and made it an absurdist art form. But he's the only one. Ignore the rest.

Thank you.
