Dirty campaign

Dear Editor:

My, oh my, what a dirty negative campaign for our highest office. However, the Democrats have given McCain a free pass on some “nasties.” Keating Five, as an example. He tried to get his friend off when he was already indicted.

McCain was shot down over North Vietnam as he was bombing rice dikes. The plan was to destroy the rice crops, force starvation, and then would surrender. Not nice, Commander. No wonder you didn’t want to come home early.

I think we can call that an attempt at genocide.

To be “fair and balanced” (Fox News slogan ” ha!), Obama associated with a man that did “despicable” things (Obama’s words) when Obama was 8 years old. Sounds serious, or does it? Should Obama have known that? We cannot hold it against McCain that he had the most “demerits” ever, and was fifth from the bottom of his class at the USNA.
