Bush Tactics as McShame Marches On

McCain-Palin disseminates a new "robocall" to the thankful electorate thirsty for phone interruptions during dinner:

"Hello. I'm calling for John McCain and the RNC because you need to know that Barack Obama has worked closely with domestic terrorist Bill Ayres, whose organization bombed the U.S. capitol, the Pentagon, a judge's home and killed Americans. And Democrats will enact an extreme leftist agenda if they take control of Washington. Barack Obama and his Democratic allies lack the judgment to lead our country. This call was paid for by McCain-Palin 2008 and the Republican National Committee at 202-863-8500."

Hey, it worked for Bush in South Carolina in 2000 against McCain. At least McCain removed the push-polling element: "Hello voter. God bless America. Would it affect your vote if you knew that Barack Obama works with terrorists who bomb buildings? Push "1" for "yes." Push "2" for "of course." Or, push "3" for "he's Muslim."

What the word "phone" conjures for McCain.
