McCain-Palin lashing out

The new McCain-Palin ad "Lashing Out" begins like an earlier ad we criticized, with its reference to Barack Obama's celebrity, but then goes down new paths of deception. It takes quotes from news organizations and uses them out of context in an effort to portray Obama and his running mate, Joe Biden, as unfairly attacking Sarah Palin and making sexist remarks. We've long been a critic of candidates (Obama included) usurping the credibility of independent news organizations and peddling false quotes, and this ad is particularly egregious. We found it airing in Denver, as recorded by the Campaign Media Analysis Group, a unit of TNS Media Intelligence.

So it looks like Obama-Biden aren't attacking Palin, it just the repugnants maing noise.

No...she`s being attacked alright...imho, one read thru this forum the past week is all anyone needs to do to see that.

Anyway, imho, the ad is still misleading...when, in reality, it doesn`t need to be.
