McCain Tangled In His Own Web

John McCain (and his running mate) spent the last week stirring up the crowds into a frenzy of anger and hate against Barack Obama. McCain stood silent as crowds cried out "terrorist" and "traitor" while he was speaking. He is running nothing but negative ads claiming that Obama associates with terrorists.

But then prominent Republicans began to criticize McCain, and Palin, and in a feeble attempt to save his reputation he told some poor woman that Obama is not an Arab. (See the video below for the media interview with the poor dotty woman, who is convinced that Obama is a dangerous Arab -- because she read it at the library.) And now the media is acting as though something has changed, as though McCain has repented. The negative ads are still on the air. His contemptible running mate is still whipping up the hate.

John McCain has fallen, and he can't get up.
