Hillary and Obama are starting to take aim at McCain, and they've chosen an outright lie about his Iraq policy for one of their highlights.
Krauthammer has details.
"But a serious argument is not what Democrats are seeking. They want the killer sound bite, the silver bullet to take down McCain.
According to Politico, they have found it: "'Dems to hammer McCain for '100 years.'" The device? Charge that McCain is calling for a hundred years of war."
"The Annenberg Political Fact Check, a nonprofit and nonpartisan project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, says: 'It's a rank falsehood for the DNC to accuse McCain of wanting to wage "endless war" based on his support for a presence in Iraq something like the U.S. role in South Korea.'"
On his final point, I disagree with Krauthammer.
It's quite frequently you see a dirty lie being propagated by this crowd.
The entire eight years of George Bush's presidency was subjected to such a tactic by the not-so loyal opposition.
