Republican Smear Ad : License to Drive

The Worst Campaign Ad of the Entire Season?
By Kyle Munzenrieder / October 20, 2008

Wonkette has this ad starring America’s (and by that I mean, the America Michelle Bachman and Sarah Palin talk about, the “pro-American America”) two most feared terrorists from the National Republican Trust PAC (as in, not directly related to McCain). Ha ha, yes it is hysterically, ridiculously, sad and desperate, and not at all based in any sort of fact. Actually, the version of Mohamed Atta’s drivers license they feature is a fake.

For one, the expiration date is 09-11-01. Morbid.

Also it said it was issued in September ’99, but Atta didn’t get his license until April ’01. And wait, who was in charge of Florida then? Jeb Bush and a Republican-controlled Legislature. Not that they’re at fault either, but if I had a PAC, I could make a pretty good smear ad out of it, that is if I decided I didn’t really need any semblance of dignity.

Oh, look there’s a moving image version too. Ugh.

For the record, disgraced formed NY Gov. Elliot “Client 9” Spitzer had this whole “give driver licenses to illegal immigrants” plan, and in the primaries, Obama said he supported it. It was mainly an issue because Hillary changed her stance on it a couple of time. Now it’s linked, for absolutely no reason, to terrorism, because people are horrible, horrible racists or deeply partisan twats who aren’t above using the worst fear-based tactics to score a win for their guy.

    Yes, and I just saw a forward of another smear attack that Obama was actually born in Kenya and therefore cannot be President — don’t these idiots realize that their own candidate was born in Panama?? On the other hand, people I know are reporting record early voting in their towns, states, and local precincts.

  2. I beieve Obama has already filed a petition for the dismissal of the law-suit that was filed against him on August 22, 2008.

    Google trends show that the past 3 days, both of these issues are coming up over and over, and both web-sites and blogs are ramping up that same story that was going on since late-August of this year.

    I’m guessing McCain has pulled out more ‘stops’, and more to come; he thinks this is a ‘war’, instead of a campaign. Frankly, I think he’s ‘truly off his rocker’ – I wish he’d have to give over his medical records (since I see he hasn’t), and it wouldn’t surprise me if he’s been treated for some mental problems.

    Everything is ‘war’ with him; he’s anxious – angry, his eyes are always wide with a rage and he seethes when he talks about his ‘opponent’. He snipes; he’s sarcastic, and he acts like the town gossip – spreading lies and rumors.

    Maybe being guilty of so many indecent acts and knowing just how corrupt he is, makes him suspect everyone else is the same way.

    I don’t remember ever seeing such an election year; not only at the presidential level, but in our state – hateful, hateful….

    I’ll be glad when it’s over with! /ds
