If there was any shred of credibility left to the McCain campaign, it's all gone now. On H&C Wednesday night, John McCain dived into Sean Hannity's bath tub and called for a full vetting of Obama's relationship with Bill Ayers. It's interesting how bad poll numbers turned the Media's Maverick into a bottom feeder now. He certainly has made Hannity, Karl Rove and Lee Atwater very proud tonight. I really thought it was going to be Sarah Palin who would answer these questions posed by the despicable Hannity as McCain sat and watched, (Hannity most recently used a known anti-Semite named Andy Martin to come on his show to smear Obama) but McCain answered them directly.

McCain: It's about Sen Obama being candid and straight forward with the American people about their relationship.

Hannity: Should the American people be concerned that he's capable in a post 9/11 world of fighting terrorism when he is friends with an unrepentant terrorist?

McCain: Well I think that's also part of the judgement the American people make. But first I think we ought to have a full and complete examination of the relationship and then the American people can make a judgment...

I hope it's vetted out, I think it needs to be vetted out.....including the ACORN organization

With the country suffering right now as much as it is, John McCain, who once said he would run a respectable campaign chose to become a clone of Sean Hannity. Sure, they'll grab a news cycle, but voters want answers to our problems not whacked out FOX News nonsense. Shame on you John McCain.

Obama has plenty of material to work with if McCain goes there in the last debate. Expect McCain's surrogates to go on the offensive too. And I find it laughable that Republicans are crying about voter fraud, but that's for another post.
