“After a week of bile”

“Is McCain serious about Ayers… No” and a response from Time

Etc., etc.

It’s incredible to me that the McCain campaign would sink this low. I shouldn’t be surprised, because this is the Republican party we’re talking about, and it’s just gotten worse and worse in my lifetime.

I guess the illusion that John McCain worked so hard to create during the first 30 years of his political career — that he was somehow above the down-and-dirty realities of American politics — has been completely shattered now, and he’s left looking like an angry, self-centered, spoiled powermonger who will do anything to either achieve the highest office in the land or leave a path of death and destruction in his wake.

(Edit: Oh, but, this is odd: McCain tries to put the genie back in the bottle.)
