Never letting the facts interfere with his fantasy, Obama’s put out this, where he says that McCain is two-faced when it comes to immigration:The Trail translated
“They want us to forget the insults we’ve put up with, the intolerance,” the television ad’s announcer says in Spanish as a picture of Rush Limbaugh appears onscreen with quotes of him saying, “Mexicans are stupid and unqualified” and “Shut your mouth or get out.”
Since when is Rush Limbaugh running for office? But I digress.
“They made us feel marginalized in a country we love so much,” the ad continues. “John McCain and his Republican friends have two faces. One that says lies just to get our vote and another, even worse, that continues the failed policies of George Bush that put special interests ahead of working families.”
The companion radio ad uses the same script as above and then continues:
“Don’t forget that John McCain abandoned us rather than confront the leaders of the Republican Party. Many of us were born here, and others came to work and achieve a better life for their families — not to commit crimes or drain the system like many of John McCain’s friends claim. Let’s not be fooled by political tricks from John McCain and the Republicans. Vote so they respect us. Vote for a change.”
As always, the O’campaign can’t be bothered to notice that McCain has been (and continues to be) severely criticized within his own party (Limbaugh being one of the loudest critics) for his immigration reform bill. Of course, if Obama had half a clue, he’d know the material attributed to Limbaugh is from a parody of Mexican immigration laws.
It just doesn’t fit their narrative.
Here’s the McCain ad, in English,
Here’s a bit of advice to the McCain campaign, if you really want to reach Hispanic voters, publicize widely Obama’s position on abortion and his profoundly immoral objection to the legislation protecting infants who survive abortion. THAT will get you Hispanic voters to your side.

On the hacked Palin email accounts, Moe adds a PS to his post Well, Senator Obama, at least you don’t have to blame *yourself* for the bad timing.
Don’t even think about whining about the question being
You send out
people to disrupt radio interviews with the verbal equivalent of
DOS attacks. And you had better hope that your little DNC anti-Palin packet isn’t on anybody’s confiscated hard drive – or, better, not-quite deleted from same. Because things
are serious, now.
