Dems sharpen personal attacks on McCain-Palin...

Video: Obama 'pig' jab...

McCain camp angry...

OBAMA: 'LIPSTICK ON A PIG, STILL A PIG'

OBAMA QUESTIONS MCCAIN'S HONOR...

NY Gov. accuses McCain campaign of veiled racism; 'Community organizer' another way of saying 'black'...

Thats some of the political news of the day and reflects the current state of our national political discourse.

Now I'm positive that were L&P still open, one or more of these stories, would become the subject of a new thread.

With our would be leaders themselves engaging in puerile bickering and personal attacks, how could it not spill over into a discussion of it, given the current highly partisan atmosphere?

L&P posters are being held to a higher standard than the very politicians we are discussing.

Not that thats a bad thing, too bad their isn't a way to moderate the Obama and McCain campaigns.
