Well, the thing I am struck by is that the republicans are such fearmongers. And it is so obvious that they are doing this because they don't want to have to discuss the issues. It's easier for them if they get the public off the issues and distracted. (the was what the Palin announcement did, that was what McCain's crisis suspension and attempt to call of the debate).

So, I've found it incredibly effective to tell them not to be so fearful and hateful and then I bring the discussion onto an issue. Like, for example, the financial/economic national international mess we are in and how on earth they think McCain's plans, which are Bush's plans to the letter. And then it's relevant as heck to bring up Keating!

Irritates them endlessly not to be able to get us off the issues!

Whenever possible, be kind. It's always possible.

I'm a firm believer in going with the flow. If you want to play nice then I'll play nice but if you want to get down and dirty, then it's ON. It's time to start beating the GOP at their own game. Everything should be on the table.

I laugh every time I hear John McCain speak of family values. What a joke. A dirtbag who dumps his handicapped wife and children for a hussy. Time to take the gloves off.

I absolutely agree...Palin's comments were way off base...a total distortion...whereas McCain really was involved with Keating. Glad to see it brought up.

That is exactly how I felt also but after Palin's claim that Obama associated with terrorists I say let's fight mud with mud.

I'm sad that we had to go there but if they want to take the gloves off and throw mud, I guess Obama had to open McCain's closet and shake out the skeleton that most links him to the economic disaster we're dealing with. Once again McCain gambled and threw the dice...craps player loses to chess player again!

I am so excited Obama's team is calling McCain out for his role in Keating Five! It's about time!!!
