Not News: McCain misrepresents Obama’s stance in new ad; Stupid: They voted together on said stance

Yep, you heard me right- another gem from the McCain campaign.

John McCain’s campaign is running a Spanish language ad in battleground states that blames Barack Obama and Senate Democrats for the failure of attempts to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws – even though the Republican nominee and his Democratic counterpart cast identical votes in the key Senate showdowns on that issue last year

Wonderful. This ad is running in Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico; obviously, McCain’s decided these three are probably the most important states on the map in this cycle as far as return of investment, and since he’s playing poorly with hispanics right now…

On a completely different note, does anyone else notice that all the neo-cons have been ignoring the fact they were yelling and scremaing about McCain’s immigration stance before he got the nod?

    The lying? I mean how do we show the public that McCain is a total lying hypocrite? Or in words we can all understand, a republican.

    from normal folk (at work and on C-Span’s Washington Journal, for example) if we can get out the information that John McCain supports the same immigration policies that Obama does, this could cause some definite consternation amongst his more conservative supporters.

    OTOH, he has somewhat reversed his stance lately (since he started running for president, I mean), hasn’t he?
