McCain Condemns 'Extreme' Ad
Say what you will about John McCain -- for example, that he's mentally deranged old lobbyist whore with a Robert Jordan complex -- but he actually means it when he talks about certain quaint old-fashioned notions like "honor." So when the North Carolina Republicans announced they were going to run this stupid race-baiting "Did you know Obama is black, and angry?" ad, John McCain fired off a furious email to the state party chairwoman lamenting the degradation of Our Civics and defending the honor of the Process. Read his honorable fulminations after the jump!
Dear Chairman Daves,
From the beginning of this election, I have been committed to running a respectful campaign based upon an honest debate about the great issues confronting America today. I expect all state parties to do so as well. The television advertisement you are planning to air degrades our civics and distracts us from the very real differences we have with the Democrats. In the strongest terms, I implore you to not run this advertisement.
This ad does not live up to the very high standards we should hold ourselves to in this campaign. We need to run a campaign that is worthy of the people we seek to serve. There is no doubt that we will draw sharp contrasts with the Democrats on fundamental issues critical to the future course of our country.
But we need not engage in political tactics that only seek to divide the American people.
Once again, it is imperative that you withdraw this offensive advertisement.
Ha ha, so of course the North Carolina Republicans will tell him to go fuck himself.
