Check out the latest attack by the Obama camp. It's a 13-minute video that explores the 1980s financial scandal involving Charles Keating, along with a flock of congress people, including one John McCain. Also check out the Obama-sponsored Keating Economics site.
This assault by Obama's operatives goes to the heart of McCain's claims that he's the candidate of integrity. Meanwhile his pit bull co-maverick, in the form of Sarah Palin, is attacking Obama for non-existent relationships to a '60s radical.
Obama is clearly not going to sit idle while he's swift boated. And the Keating scandal is particularly poignant for American voters since it's akin to the Enron scandal and the current Wall Street bailout. It's always been pretty clear to me that McCain's so-called maverick stance was his way of trying to distance himself from the dirtiness he wallowed in during the '80s.
Lesson to McCain camp: You want videos? Obama got videos.
In 1990, I co-founded a magazine called URB (urb.com) in Los Angeles. URB captures an intimate view of progressive urban sounds and landscapes in print and online. Beyond my day job, I also explore the world of politics, race and culture, photography and media (new and old). pure/ROKER is designed to be a living and shared notebook of the most discussion worthy aspects. Enrichment is encouraged. Debate and disagreement unavoidable. And dissent welcomed. As always, please leave a comment if you're inspired, subscribe to my RSS or email me anytime at email@example.com.
