RAISING THE TONE?:

Obama Surrogate Attacks McCain for Age, Cancer (Jake Tapper, September 14, 2008, Political Punch)

On This Week with George Stephanopoulos this morning, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., a surrogate for the campaign of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., raised the age and health of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., when discussing the qualifications, or lack thereof, of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. [...]

When Stephanopoulos asked her it was fair to raise McCain's age, McCaskill doubled-down and mentioned his past skin cancer, saying, "I think what we're talking about is a reality. Other people talk about his melanoma. We're talking about a reality here that we have to face. This is someone who's going to be one heartbeat away from the presidency. All of us know it. I just think that it's the facts, George, and that's something that we need to start focusing on, are the facts, instead of distortions and lies."


These guys couldn't find their own butts if you spotted them a cheek. The Unicorn Rider has completely stopped talking about Ms Palin because the comparison is so unfavorable it's killing him -- particularly his lack of relevant executive experience -- so his surrogates raise the likelihood she'll be president? Are they trying to motivate women and the religious to vote against their own ticket?
