Jake Tapper: One Man Truth Squad

Right on target. The McCain campaign has done nothing to suggest that people should vote against Barack Obama because of his name or background. And it is utterly wrong of Obama to suggest otherwise. Obama is perfectly free to take issue with and take on McCain’s critiques of his candidacy. But he should actually argue against McCain instead of some straw man that Obama says is McCain.

You know, this Internet thing is really useful for calling shenanigans on the characterizations of opposing political arguments. Maybe Barack Obama would like to keep that sort of thing in mind the next time he is tempted to put words in John McCain’s mouth.
