The Latest DNC Smear

The DNC is still using the 100-year line against McCain to make a few bucks. I guess it doesn't matter to them their distortion has already been labeled as misleading by the Washington Post and others.

Heck, they're even making new videos with the smear. Click here to watch.

A fundraising pitch the DNC emailed to publicize their ad says:
John McCain wants to stay in Iraq for 100 years. He's said it, and it's on tape.

But his campaign hates that he was caught. They've viciously attacked anyone who reminded the American people that he said it, including me. They've said that those who reference the 100 years comments are "deliberately misleading voters."

So we've taken John McCain's own words -- video of him saying that 100 years would be "fine with me" -- and made a TV ad. There's no confusion, no distortion, no misleading -- it's John McCain, on tape, for voters to judge on their own.

It's one of the most powerful political ads I've ever seen. It's devastating -- and the McCain campaign will spend the rest of the election trying to fight it.
