It is that time in the election season when the gloves come off and the cheap shots are thrown.  McCain is a true poet when it comes to dirty verses.  His quick-draw sidekick has also shown her skill with the well-aimed slur.  Both of them tag-teamed to sneer community organizers of all people.   

For decades, Sen. John McCain has scattered profanities around Capitol Hill like Johnny and his apple seeds.  In 1998, he publicly levied a "joke"- that simultaneously insulted Janet Reno, Bill and Hillary Clinton and especially their then teenage daughter Chelsea.  Now, the young cygnet has grown into an attractive, charismatic and destined-to-be powerful player.  I wonder what that scattered seed of insult might one day grow into for the hapless Mr. McCain.  He has dropped the C-bomb on his own wife and possibly Hillary Clinton.  It makes one wonder how he first mentioned Sarah Palin to his campaign staff.  If in fact they didn't first mention her to him. 

Now they try to pin their own mud-slinging tactics on Obama for an old, oft-used rural colloquial phrase about a pig and lipstick.  Well, to that I must say this: "that dog don't hunt"-.  Relax, that is not any direct canine reference to any candidate.  Obama would not deign to play their cheap game of smear.  He likes to talk issues.  Something we'd like to hear more on from McCain/Palin.  Do they have substance behind the slander?
