Stay classy, McSame

This is pretty disgusting:

New McCain Ad Falsely Suggests Obama Wants Kids To Learn "About Sex Before Learning To Read"

"Obama's one accomplishment? Legislation to teach "comprehensive sex education" to kindergartners. Learning about sex before learning to read?"

Of course, Obama never supported any such thing:

As you can see, the McCain ad says that Obama was the one who pushed the "comprehensive sex education" measure. The Obama campaign has pointed out that the bill would simply add instruction on disease prevention to already existing Illinois sex-ed standards. But the McCain campaign cheerfully turned this into Obama's support for "learning about sex before learning to read."

And "civil" and "honorable" McCain approved that message.

Nor was it "his one accomplishment", but who's keeping score, right? The lies are coming fast and furious, but more significantly, this one signals that the culture war is on for real. This is how McCain wants to win this thing. And that, my friends, is certainly not change we can believe in.

John Cole's found some more "change":

This is real subtle. Quick rundown for the TLDR crowd:

On 31 August, an Alaskan General says Palin had no hand in decision

On 3 September, he says it again.

On 5 September, he completely changes his story.

On 8 September, he is promoted.

Apparently, that is change you can believe in.

Oh, and Palin? Still a liar.

Your moment of Zen:

60 pills of 25mg Viagra? $80. Birth control pills? $20 to $50 a month. The expression on John McCain's face at 50 seconds? Priceless.
