Lipstick on a fool

While I was in Lebanon, Ohio, covering Sarah Palin, it seems Obama was in Lebanon, Va., making a fool of himself. And while I was writing up my coverage, Team Maverick was producing this ad.

UPDATE: Via the Politico, an Obama spokeswoman issues this apology defense attack:

The McCain campaign’s attack tonight is a pathetic attempt to play the gender card about the use of a common analogy -- the same analogy that Senator McCain himself used about Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s health care plan just last year. This phony lecture on gender sensitivity is the height of cynicism and lays bare the increasingly dishonorable campaign John McCain has chosen to run.

A "phony lecture on gender sensitivity"? Look, if Team Obama doesn't think this could hurt them, why not ignore it?

UPDATE II: Glenn Greenwald accuses Team Maverick of reaching "new heights of stupidity." Hey, Glenn's an expert on stupidity.

  1. McCain has proposed to bankrupt the country even faster with bigger tax cuts for the wealthiest 1% and tax breaks for fossil fuel industries. He'll give you a $5000 tax cut to go out and buy $12000 worth of health insurance for your family but you're on your own after that. He thinks we can throw the Russians out of the G8 when in fact the Russians would have to vote themselves out. Even the Bush Administration thinks that's nutty. Everyone from the Iraqi government to the Bush Administration has adopted Obama's timetable for getting out of Iraq but McCain still wants to stay for four, a hundred or a thousand years, or whatever it is this week. McCain is still touting education vouchers for cryin out loud which most sensible people saw as a failure years ago.

    Frankly that pig won't fly.
