About Raising Kaine, or any left-winger, actually quoting Karl Rove.
Of course, in the RK case, they actually lie about what Karl Rove said. (There's something simply perverse about lying in a post where you are trying to say someone else is lying).
See, Karl Rove and John McCain are not really that friendly, but the left loves to pretend Rove works for McCain. Of course, in 2000 the left loved to talk about how Rove treated McCain so badly, and how great McCain was and how bad Rove was).
So today, when Rove makes the perfectly rational observation (which I wish more pundits would make) that political advertising is going too far, that hardly seems like big news. But Raising Kaine somehow thinks that is the same as calling McCain a liar. Of course, Rove did say both campaigns went too far.
And Rove gave an example -- Obama falsely attacking McCain for being stuck in the 1980's technologically. Oddly, Rove did not provide any specific examples of McCain lying about Obama. And he didn't give a specific example of where McCain went too far, but I think the whole "lipstick on a pig" would be a great example.
The media is going to work for the Democrats. So the Democrats can make up things about Republicans, and will only get called on it when they are so out to lunch that it offends the sensibilities -- like the whole "Trig is Bristol's child" story.
But the media loves to jump on anything a Republican does wrong -- so Republicans DO have to be better, and we should be. There was no reason for McCain to push the "Obama is insensitive to women. Hillary Clinton's supporters are doing a great job of it, and everybody who wanted to believe Obama's "pig" was Palin already believed it.
The rest of of knew that Obama was calling Palin "lipstick", meaning she was just a pretty face, not to be taken seriously. Which itself would have been a great message, but not after you tried to pretend he called her a pig.
So, which is worse. Obama lying about Palin when he failed to note she had been a Governor (thus misleading people into thinking she was simply a former mayor), or McCain saying Obama called Palin a pig? I don't know.
But I do know that when the liberal democrats start lying about what Karl Rove said in order to make their points, something has gone seriously wrong in liberal-land.
