Throw the flag against: The Republican National Committee and the McCain-Palin campaign.

Call: Offsides.

What happened: A new 60-second television ad from the RNC and John McCain’s campaign that’s running in a dozen swing states misstates the facts about opponent Barack Obama‘s stands on issues.

Obama and his liberal allies promise higher taxes on your income, life savings, your electric bill. They oppose offshore drilling,” the ad says.

Why that’s wrong: Obama isn’t promising higher taxes on everyone’s income. He’d rescind the 2001 and 2003 income-tax cuts for individuals who earn more than $200,000 a year or families earning more than $250,000 but would give tax breaks to almost everyone else. Source Article
