In portentous tones: "The Democrats are planning over a trillion dollars of new spending. They're planning to double or even triple your taxes, even if your family earns as little as $42,000 a year. Families who are already struggling. There's only one way to prevent it..." Then McCain comes on at the end, "I'm John McCain and I approve this message."

There's no law against this, right? How could there be, who would enforce it? And how? The worst that happens is that someone's forced to apologize or retract, but how can that matter even a little when it's already election day?

I actually thought election-day adverts were prohibited, shows how much I know!

And how about the McCain robocall in Florida this afternoon: "Castro wants you to vote for Obama". Disgustin'

On the vein of the thread, while I was not happy with HOW Kentucky's vote ended, I was very happy to see over 66% of all registered voters cast their ballot.

That is the sign of good things.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
