McPain plans month of Obama smears. Vern plans month of responses.

And so it goes, both shoes always eventually drop, scum will rise in due time, and the flailing, faltering McPain Campaign announces to all and sundry that they intend to “turn the page” from the economic mess and any other relevant issues, to questioning Obama’s character and patriotism.  (Joe Klein points out the absurdity and ineptness of announcing the new strategy:  “Other campaigns have decided that their only shot is going negative, but usually they don’t announce it, as several McCain aides have in recent days–there’s no way we can win on the economy, so we’re going to go sludge-diving.”)  Anyway, I don’t know what it’s like for you, but when I hear repeated lies gaining currency it’s like walking with a pebble in my shoe – I have to get it out immediately.  So even if the McPain Campaign plans to launch a new lie every day for the next month, I say:  BRING IT ON!
