New Low: Liberal Pac Launches Attack on McCain's Health

Posted: Sep 25, 2008 9:14 AM
I happened to catch this on TV this morning, and found it to be one of the most disgusting ads I've ever seen in my life ...

Script of "McCain's Health Records" (TV)

(Text on screen: John McCain is 72 years old and had cancer 4 times)

MICHAEL D. FRAKIN: The relevance of knowing the details of his course with melanoma are very important.

(Text on screen: MD)

Another bout of cancer for John McCain while he is president of the United States would profoundly impact his capacity to lead.

NOAH CRAFT: Melanoma is the deadliest of skin cancers and the chances of survival, if you have melanoma spread through your body, are very, very slim.

(Text on screen: MD, PhD; Why won't John McCain release his Medical Records?)

ANNOUNCER [v/o]: Brave New PAC and Democracy For America are responsible for the content of this advertising.

(Text on screen: Paid for by Brave New PAC,, and Democracy for America,, and not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee)

... Rumor has it that Jim Lehrer plans to ask McCain about health records if the debate happens on Friday.
