Dirty ugly nasty

For those of you who thought Obama was delivering a new kinda politics to America, here's notice that he'll be as ugly as necessary to win.

Barack is running a spanish language ad that attacks McCain for being two-faced on illegal immigration. You can't trust McCain's Republican friends, it argues, using clips of Rush Limbaugh taken out of context, as the symbol of ugly conservatives.


The commercial, to air in Limbaugh's home state of Florida as well as Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada, features a picture of the conservative talk show host and shows his words on the screen: "Mexicans are stupid and unqualified" and "Shut your mouth or get out." It was first reported by the Washington Post's Ed O'Keefe.
Obama's campaign must figure, if they do it in spanish, who will even know?
"Obama is now stoking racism in the country," Limbaugh wrote in an email. "Obama is a disgrace - he wants the public to think he is Mr. Nice Guy while his thugs are in Alaska looking for dirt on Palin and he runs race-baiting ads and lies about what he has done and what McCain has done."
It doesn't bother me that Barack has no scruples. What irks me is that moonbats continue to think he's offering a higher caliber of politics - while deceiving them on policy issues that are much more important than over the top commercials.
McCain launched his own Spanish-language ad last week blaming Obama for the collapse of immigration reform last week, striking a more moderate tone on the issue than his border security-focused stance in the GOP primary. Polls show Obama leading among Hispanic voters, but McCain is making an aggressive push for their support as they represent a key constituency in key states such as Florida and the competitive states in the intterior west.
