Colbert: Where Has The "Real" McCain Gone?

(h/t Heather)

A lot of people are wondering where the "old John McCain" went? Stephen goes looking.

Colbert: Now, many Americans are feeling confused about the Senator, because earlier in the campaign John McCain made promises like this.

McCain: "I pledged at that time and I pledge again a respectful campaign, a respectful campaign based on this issues. People say, 'well, negative ads move numbers.' Well, they may, but do we have to go to the lowest common denominator?"

Colbert: No, we don't. McCain's ads prove we can stay below it. So what has happened to John McCain. I think I may have the answer...

Senator Obama should cut an ad juxtaposing McCain's previous promises of positive campaigning with the disgusting sleaze we're seeing today. We ought to shame him for becoming the very same despicable pol he's always denounced.
