Remember Ken Blackwell’s NAMBLA-supports-my-opponent argument?

It looks like McCain is pulling a Blackwell in his new ad: accusing Barack Obama of passing legislation to teach sex ed to kindergartners…

Obviously the accusation is a lie. Obama’s bill included “‘age appropriate’ sex-education for children as a means of teaching them what was proper or inproper touching, as well as to protect them against pedophiles”. Hardly the same thing as handing out flavored condoms with their milk and cookies.

But hey- why let the truth get in the way of political attacks.

The response from the Obama campaign was pretty good though:

It is shameful and downright perverse for the McCain campaign to use a bill that was written to protect young children from sexual predators as a recycled and discredited political attack against a father of two young girls – a position that his friend Mitt Romney also holds. Last week, John McCain told Time magazine he couldn’t define what honor was. Now we know why.

  • I’ve been saying for some time now that John McCain and the Bush Republicans have been running a dishonorable campaign. Glad to see the Obama camp is finally on board with this framing. Perfect time to use it. Keep hammering it home, more dishonor is on it’s way.

    They should not back down at all from this dishonor theme no matter how many times people shout POW.

    Ought not back down from lipstick on pig either. They should instead ask what John meant when he said it of Hillary’s health care plan.

    Now is the time to stiffen up.

    Mark doesn’t project much does he? LOL. Politics 101. Never. EVER make an argument that reflects worse on you. Amateur move, Mark. I’d comment over there, but the whiners won’t let me. Don’t like being called on their BS.
