Better late than never.

The American media have been slow to expose John McCain’s devious campaign tactics, and some of his outright lies, but at least they’ve finally started to do that.

For some reason, though, they allow McCain to get away with his attempts to justify the nasty “tenor” of his campaign.

When pressed about some of the utter falsehoods he has thrown at Barack Obama, such as the lipstick and child sex-ed accusations, John McCain has tended to go on the offense.

He did that when the women on ABC’s The View became the first to do what the rest of the corporate media had lacked the cojones to do, confront the candidate over his lies.

McCain responded with the following:

“This is a tough campaign. I have asked Senator Obama to join me in town hall meetings all across America. I have requested it time after time. And if we had done what I asked Senator Obama to do…I don’t think you’d see the tenor of this campaign.”

I know you’re partisan, but I don’t think you can ignore the vitriol coming from either side. What about Obama’s ad criticizing McCain for not using a computer (he can’t type on a keyboard due to war injuries) or the ad saying McCain is somehow racist towards Mexicans (just ridiculous).

It seems both campaign are insulting everyone’s intelligence.
