Obamas McCain ad

One September 11th, 2008 the Obama Campaign posted and/or aired a commercial critical of Senator John McCain in reference to McCains age. In t he commercial it is mentioned Senator McCain does not know how to use the Internet or send an email. The blogosphere went buzzing with criticism concerning the insensitivity of this commercial by the Obama campaign.

Then on September 14th, 2008 The Boston Globe issued an article in an attempt to provide cover for the Obama Campaign. This article written by Bryan Bender of The Boston Globe, writes in part,

..including stories several years ago in the Boston Globe and that indicated injuries McCain sustained when he was a prisoner of war in Vietnam prevent him from using a keyboard.

The key word in the article was indicated. That Boston Globe article written several years ago, appeared in The Boston Globe on March 4th, 2000, written by Mary Leonard. Here is in part what Ms. Leonard wrote in that article,

McCains severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes.

Did you read anything in the above 2000 article which gave the impression of indicated? This is an example of the news media providing cover for the insensitivity in the Obama Campaign and the stupidly of The Boston Globe.

Both candidates have a YouTube channel. The commercial mentioned in this video by
Obama is titled Still Ad, and appears on his YouTube page:


As of around 2 PM on September 15, 2008, that video received around 274,243 viewers. Only 5 comments were posted, all of which are complementary to the candidate. Meaning the Stalinist on the Obama campaign staff are performing censorship as they can not handle decision. Are these the people you want to see in our next administration?

While at the McCain YouTube channel:


As of around 2 PM on September 15, 2008, a video posted on September 7th, 2008, titled Original Mavericks, received around 272,217 viewers. This video with about 3,851 comments, many of which are derogatory towards Senator McCains campaign. Meaning the McCain staff did not engage in wholesale censorship and believes in free speech. Now you decide who you would vote for. The man who hires on his staff Stalinist, or the man who hires on his staff who believe in free speech
