Batton down the hatches and get prepared for the final assault. Shit is going to get ugly. John McCain has already decided to go almost 100% negative (something John says the American people don’t want).

Now we learn that they will not only go totally negative. They will go MORE negative than they have been. They’re gonna go nookular:

Sen. John McCain and his Republican allies are readying a newly aggressive assault on Sen. Barack Obama’s character, believing that to win in November they must shift the conversation back to questions about the Democrat’s judgment, honesty and personal associations, several top Republicans said.

“We’re going to get a little tougher,” a senior Republican operative said, indicating that a fresh batch of television ads is coming. “We’ve got to question this guy’s associations. Very soon. There’s no question that we have to change the subject here,” said the operative, who was not authorized to discuss strategy and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Here come the bastards.
