McCain campaign - not Palin - came up with "palling around"; Schmidt regrets largely true ad - 07/10/09

... it was Nicolle Wallace of the McCain campaign - and not Palin - that came up with the "palling around" bit. That allowed the mainstream media to mislead about the relationship between the two, dismissing that relationship by pointing out that they weren't close friends and using that distraction to cover up the series of past links between them. See the contemporaneous coverage of the article...

Greg Mitchell misleads about MSM smears of Sarah Palin ("Why Obama Won") - 02/15/09

... did breathe new life into the McCain campaign, and as of September 12 (link) she did help him at least nationally. However, Mitchell intentionally misses the point: Palin could have helped McCain in the polls if the MSM had not almost immediately started lying and misleading about her. His is just a strawman argument intended to divert attention from the disgraceful MSM coverage she received and...

"Latino Voting in the 2008 Election: Part of a Broader Electoral Movement" - 01/28/09

The Center for Immigration Studies has released a new report on the so-called Hispanic vote in the 2008 elections (link). A few key points: * The drop in support among Latinos for Republicans between 2004 and 2008 was part of a broad-based electoral movement away from the GOP, and was hardly specific to that demographic group. McCain received only 57 percent of the white male vote, compared with...

Juan Hernandez to lobby Obama for immigration amnesty (still with Reform Institute) - 01/25/09

... who later worked with the John McCain campaign doing outreach to (U.S.) Hispanics - was interviewed by the Al Dia (owned by the Dallas Morning News) and said he'll be staying in Washington DC to lobby the Barack Obama campaign to pass comprehensive immigration reform, aka an amnesty. Hernandez is still a Senior Fellow of the "Comprehensive Immigration Reform Initiative" at the McCain-linked...

Nicolle Wallace tries rounding up other Republicans for Leader Obama - 01/22/09

... former senior advisor to the McCain campaign and George W Bush employee Nicolle Wallace offers "Republicans Get on Board/Even some former Bush aides are smitten with the new president. Now, will lefties let the GOP inside the tent?" (link). I am fighting very, very hard to avoid screaming out the first appellation that comes to mind. So, I'll just say that she and her friends are simply...

Mark McKinnon says people like him are the problem with the GOP, and he's right - 12/23/08

... advertising strategist for the John McCain campaign who quit in May rather than run against Barack Obama (link) - takes to the Daily Beast to offer "The Problem With the GOP Is... Me" (link). And, he's right, although, of course, not in the way intended:

New smear: Palin didn't know Africa was a continent or the three countries in NAFTA - 11/05/08

[IMPORTANT UPDATE BELOW] An unnamed John McCain aide supposedly told Carl Cameron of Fox News - a tool if there ever was one - that Sarah Palin didn't know that Africa was a continent instead of a country. The aide also told him that she didn't know which countries were in NAFTA. Needless to say, this comes on the heels of a long line of smears against Palin, and it's almost assuredly a smear as...

Barack Obama lied about ACORN involvement (he was a trainer) - 10/10/08

... and here. UPDATE: Here's a McCain campaign video about BHO's involvement with ACORN:

John McCain ad was right and Barack Obama, MSM misled about BHO's kindergartener sex education bill - 09/16/08

Earlier this month the John McCain campaign released an ad (link, video link) saying in part: "Obama's one accomplishment? Legislation to teach "comprehensive sex education" to kindergartners. Learning about sex before learning to read? Barack Obama. This has led to a wide variety of BHO supporters - specifically those in the MSM - calling McCain a liar. To a certain extent, they have...

Ethnocentric Lionel Sosa working for John McCain (money from Mexican government?) - 07/16/08

Lionel Sosa is an extremely ethnocentric GOP advertising consultant who worked on George W Bush's presidential campaigns. Last year, he crossed over and supported Bill Richardson because, as he said at the time, "Blood runs thicker than politics". Now, he's switched back and is working for John McCain: Sosa, the son of Mexican immigrants, said his San Antonio-based team is editing a five-minute...

Elderly librarian ejected from John McCain event! (Don't worry about the details; ProgressNow) - 07/07/08

Denver, Colorado's ProgressNow - a group linked to both the Democratic Party and multi-millionaire illegal immigration supporter Jared Polis - is pushing the story of a poor, helpless, 61-year-old part time librarian who was arrested before a John McCain event just because she was holding a sign saying "McCain = Bush" (progressnowaction.org/page/community/post/al/Cqyh). Except, of course, there's...
