John McCain: the Slime and Sublime Tour 2008

Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo, in the second part of this video, explains how John McCain and the Republicans can simultaneously wallow in the muck and stay above the fray in the general election campaign against Barack Obama. They are already showing signs of their strategy if Obama is the nominee. Republican attack machine surrogates will do all the dirty work, sliming Obama with innuendo, while McCain and the party committee condemn them and remain squeaky clean.

It's the same strategy Bush used against McCain in 2000 with push pollers in South Carolina and later against John Kerry with the Swift Boaters. This is just the warm up. We can expect a lot more once the general election campaign is on. McCain has traded in the Straight Talk Express for the Slime and Sublime Tour.

Thanks dude, I'm really learning the nuts and bolts of what's going on behind the scenes that I always knew was going on, but didn't quite know exactly what "it" was. Your blog is a convenient single source for me to become informed, and learn more about this game we call a political process. Mighty grateful to you and the revolution.

Don't mention it. Uhm well, actually do mention it because I appreciate comments of any kind. The good and the bad. Thanks. It honestly is my pleasure. I enjoy doing it. Now if it only paid the bills. "You can't always get what you want...."
