Faux News and New McCain Ad:
Obama Agrees With McCain, Therefore Obama Is Not Ready To Lead

These people are loathsome almost beyond the telling of it.

First the funny part: the ad basically says that, since Obama agrees with McCain (like, three times...), Obama is not ready to lead. That may be the best argument the McCain camp has made yet. You've gotta admit: agreeing with McCain is a worrisome sign...

Now the serious part: this is yet another way in which the GOP helps to erode the foundation of rationality and good will that makes our democracy possible. They explicitly fuel the pernicious, bullshit view that you must disagree with your opponents viciously and on every issue. This is polarization not only as an effect and not only as an intentional strategy, but as an ideal.

This is disgusting.
