    The Republicans have no issues to run on, so they have to make the election about Obama. He's a muslim! He's friend of terrorists! Today the talking point is, He's a socialist! The problem is Obama is none of these things. Obama is a Christian. He is not a friend of terrorists and he is not a socialist. In addition Obama has more governmental experience(10 years) than all but 20 of our presidents, and he is intelligent, charismatic, and well spoken. So what do the Republicans do? They use lies, falsehoods, and inuendo in the hope that the electorate is just dumb enough to believe them.

    How strange. I haven't heard McCain say any of those things.

    In fact, most of those talking posts came from Hillary's campaign.

    Go figure.

    McCain is the only Republican out there? Who knew.

    Oh, and he did. And its even on Drudge. What happened Allie, too depressed to even check out far-right news sites?

    McCain suggests Obama tax policies are socialist - Yahoo! News

    Actually, no it doesn't shame me, and he is a socialist. I read something into the original post that wasnt' there. I think I might have been looking at a different post on my second monitor and responded here.

    Anyway. He's a socialist.

    Wrong.

    Socialism is control of the means of production by the government.

    The Republican strategy is the same one that Bush used to win South Carolina in 2000 by claiming that McCain had fathered a black baby. The reason McCain's strategy is the same is that he has Karl Rove clones running his campaign.

    Will it work?

    I hope not.
