  •  When McCain admits that he's "tainted" (1+ / 0-)

    he's sending the message to the base that he's humble and aware of his failings.  If you take into account the conservative prejudice that all men are created evil (sinners), then such an admission is received as a sign of repentance.

    If take another look at the "The One" video and note where the interviewer asks Obama if he ever has any doubts and they have him answer "never," (an obviously edited response to another question) that's to send the message that he's arrogant.

    The truth can't compete with that kind of stuff.
    Their ads aren't designed to tell the truth; they're designed to suggest character flaws--what liberals consider to be virtues.

    How do you tell a predator from a protector? The predator will eat you sooner rather than later.
