On the other hand, for those interested in the facts, Bob Owens has the complete list of books banned in Wasilla.

Next smear, please. Bring it on

Media bias? Ya think??

Check out Little Green Footballs for an interesting story on how The Atlantic got its cover photo of John McCain.

And yet the media glitterati wonder why the public thinks they’re biased. Rolling Eyes

Panic sets in?

Jennifer Rubin thinks the Obama campaign is losing their grip. Why? Because high-minded new politics is giving way McCarthy-like tactics and dirty personal attacks. The latest seeing Obama surrogates warn us that -gasp!- John McCain is old and has had cancer!

On This Week with George Stephanopoulos this morning, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., a surrogate for the campaign of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., raised the age and health of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., when discussing the qualifications, or lack thereof, of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

McCaskill said she stood by her remarks that she’s "uncomfortable with anyone, regardless of gender, that is going to be vice president to one of the oldest presidents we’ve ever had that has never met a world leader."

When Stephanopoulos asked her it was fair to raise McCain’s age, McCaskill doubled-down and mentioned his past skin cancer, saying, "I think what we’re talking about is a reality. Other people talk about his melanoma.  We’re talking about a reality here that we have to face.  This is someone who’s going to be one heartbeat away from the presidency.  All of us know it.  I just think that it’s the facts, George, and that’s something that we need to start focusing on, are the facts, instead of distortions and lies."

So, rather than economics or foreign affairs, rather than judicial appointments and energy policy, we need to focus on John McCain’s age and health.

And Missouri actually elected this yutz? Guys, lay off the moonshine!

Of course, given the latest polls nationally and from Minnesota, maybe there’s reason for McCaskill’s desperation.
