Just as Incompetent -- or Worse

If John McCain's campaign is lying about Barack Obama at every turn:

...doesn't that make John McCain himself a liar?

If his campaign is sending out mailers deliberately misinforming potential Obama supporters in a critical state:
About one-third of the absentee ballot applications received at the Hamilton County Board of Elections have been ruled invalid because Republican Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign printed a version of the form with an extra, unneeded box on it.
...doesn't that make the John McCain an enemy of American democracy?

If his Vice Presidential running-mate is completely oblivious of the most important and disastrous foreign policy doctrine of the past eight years:

...doesn't that make John McCain a fool for having chosen her?

If she also thinks we may need to start a war with Russia without thinking if it's in the best interest of our own country:

When asked by Gibson if under the NATO treaty, the U.S. would have to go to war if Russia again invaded Georgia, Palin responded: "Perhaps so. I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you're going to be expected to be called upon and help.

"And we've got to keep an eye on Russia. For Russia to have exerted such pressure in terms of invading a smaller democratic country, unprovoked, is unacceptable," she told ABC News' Charles Gibson in an exclusive interview.

...doesn't that make him a dangerous fool for having chosen her?

If John McCain is somehow not responsible for all these key aspects of his Presidential campaign, doesn't that say that he is just not in control of his campaign, meaning that he is grossly incompetent for the office he seeks? I mean, how will he somehow be more in control when he's got the full breadth of Presidential responsibilities to contend with for four full years, if he is not in control of his own campaign?

Doesn't all this essentially disqualify him from office, no matter how many years he spent in a POW camp? Doesn't all this (and more) make electing him a danger to America?

Even (thinking) conservatives are getting scared.

How's this for a new GOP campaign slogan:

Vote McCain-Palin
For Four More Years of Lies
Covering Up Nation-Threatening Incompetence and Criminality
At the Highest Level of Government.

Okay, a little wordy, but it might be the first time in a long time that John McCain and his campaign had told the truth.
