Barack Obama sponsored a law in Illinois designed to teach schoolchildren, all the way down to kingergarten age, to protect themselves from sexual predators. I’m not sure whether McCain’s attack on that bill is designed to win the votes of the pedophiles or attract campaign contributions from the kiddie-porn industry. But no doubt that man of honor is proud of it, just as he’s proud of his entire sleazy, lying campaign. Feh.
“It is shameful and downright perverse for the McCain campaign to use a bill that was written to protect young children from sexual predators as a recycled and discredited political attack against a father of two young girls — a position that his friend Mitt Romney also holds,” Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton said in a statement. “Last week, John McCain told Time magazine he couldn’t define what honor was. Now we know why.”
Looks as if Obama is ready to take the gloves off. “Downright perverse.” Exactly.
If this makes you as angry as it makes me, remember the first rule of politics: “Don’t get mad, get even.” Write a check to the campaign, and get a dozen of your friends to do the same. Donating on line takes less than a minute.
