New McCain ad: Obama is a big scary black man who wants to teach your children about sex

 New McCain ad: Obama is a big scary black man who wants to teach your children about sex

Not really sure what to say about this one. It certainly plumbs hitherto unfounded depths of sleaze.

I don't know the particulars of the law in question. I'm looking into it.

-A

UPDATE: The Obama camp responds:

"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.  Last week, John McCain told Time magazine he couldn’t define what honor was.  Now we know why."

LATE UPDATE: The law in question was from Obama's time in the Illinois Legislature. The kindergarten sex-ed referenced by the McCain ad amounts to teaching the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touching.

Five reasons to be frightened of Sarah Palin

 1) She's a global warming denier.

2)  She thinks that God likes pipelines,  (h/t Juan Cole)

3) She has a whole lot in common with fundamentalists from other parts of the world.

4) She's a liar.

5) She believes the war in Iraq is God's work.
