Remember when Senators John McCain and Barack Obama promised a kinder, gentler presidential race? They said the issues would be front and center, the nasty personal attacks kept at bay, and they even floated the quaint notion of traveling the country together to engage voters in a respectful competition of ideas.

Goodbye to all that.

With less than 60 days to Election Day, the rival campaigns are at each other’s throats. In the last two days alone, put-downs have flown like daggers: McCain’s campaign called Obama’s “disturbing,” “desperate,” “offensive,” and “disgraceful.” Obama’s campaign fired back with “pathetic, “perverse,” “dishonorable,” and “shameful.” Though McCain has more often been the aggressor, the back-and-forth – to borrow a recent McCain campaign description of Obama running mate Joe Biden – has reached “a new low.” Source Article
