We have the presumptive nominees for the two parties. It's the general election season and that means it's time to start looking at the issue of character and how the various factions try to smear the other side. To the corporate media, John McCain is a lovably curmudgeonly Maverick. But we know from our buddy Cliff Schecter's book, The Real McCain (see above), that McCain has a bit of a temper on him, and not above dropping c-bombs on his sugar momma wife.

Okay, seems a little harsh. But in his defense, McCain’s a Navy man. It’s just salty Navy talk. He’s not trying to hide it, you’ve seen his campaign slogan: John McCain—Experience You C**ts Can Count On.

You know you can’t spell “count on” without c…Is this story true? Who knows, but the important thing is, it’s out there, signaling that we have officially moved into the character assassination portion of our presidential campaigns.

That's right, it's not just limited to McSame. Stewart shows us Hillary feminists for McCain ("Wow! So McCain has the blind, spite vote locked up. Because of sexism, we’re going to go with the [beep] patriarch.") and David Brooks' inane attempt to paint Barack Obama as an elitist because he doesn't seem the type to go to the Applebee's salad bar.
