After the post-convention Palin bounce, McCain’s poll numbers started dropping rapidly and are now at an all-time low according to polling site 538.com. So what’s a candidate to do other than go sharply negative? According to the Washington Post, McCain has virtually stopped running any positive ads in order to concentrate on slamming Obama. According to the AP, he has even dispatched Palin to deliver “racially tinged” attacks.
Which is what makes this video clip from 2000 that much more hypocritical. In it, McCain asserts that negative attack ads show you have no vision. My question is, what does it mean when you only run negative attack ads?
As the humor site 236.com points out, McCain has previously apologized for his opposition to the federal holiday for Martin Luther King, Jr., and for refusing to call for the removal of a Confederate flag from the capital in South Carolina. McCain will probably have to spend the rest of his life apologizing for what he will be doing during the next 30 days.
