McCain flack Michael Goldfarb, on CNN with fellow douche Rick Sanchez:



Reactions - first, from Joe Klein:
Here we have the McCain campaign’s execrable Michael Goldfarb slinging around accusations of anti-semitism—a favorite pastime, as we’ve seen this year, among Jewish neoconservatives.

Sullivan:
Michael Goldfarb, McCain spokesman, accuses Barack Obama of hanging around with anti-Semites – plural – on CNN. Asked to name one other anti-Semite other than his allegation about Rashid Khalidi, he can’t. He won’t. But he leaves it hanging, refusing to disown or retract the charge. This is pure McCarthyism. And it is the rotten core of McCain.

Publius at Obsidian Wings:
I've honestly never seen someone (at that level) act like such a complete d*** on TV before. He's attained some Platonic ideal of d***ness. I'm no PR coach, but I suspect the goal is to make something less than 100% of your audience detest you.

John Cole:
I know this is getting old, hearing me say it over and over again, but when I said that the McCain campaign was being run by wingnut bloggers, I was not engaging in hyperbole. I was simply describing who is running the McCain campaign- wingnut bloggers.

The GOP just needs to be destroyed.

We all know who Goldfarb's talking about, but that's not the point. When you're using scare tactics to scare people into voting for your guy, wouldn't it help to - I don't know - be scary? (Sanchez's conceding that Khalidi is an anti-Semite didn't help. As we've learned so many times, just because McCain says it don't mean it's true.) And why the hell are they trying to scare a demographic that is already voting 75% for Obama?

This is only further evidence that the McCain campaign would rather take you for ignorant rubes scared of their neighbors than an intelligent voter who deserves to be won over by an actual argument. Prove them wrong on Tuesday.

Ooooooooh right. Wow, I am having a slow day. When I saw this last night on Countdown, I was like, "Wait, no, really, who is he talking about?" I hope this douche gets fired and soon.
