"Another Angry Barrage of Insults"
McCain hilariously makes an effort to paint the Obama campaign as an "angry barrage of insults" on the very day of his campaign's "new direction" into full-on sleaze-mongering negativity, and finds that his comments unleash the livid-angry dot-eyed Republican id. "Who is the real Obama?" asks McCain, as if he doesn't know who his consummately talented, professional, inspirational colleague and opponent is, as if there is any question about the dedication, skill, patriotism of Obama or his countless millions of enthusiastic supporters. "Terrorist!" brays one enraged throat in answer to McCain's question from the desperate assembled Republican mob. And then a hundred howling Orc-voices erupt. My friends, how proud, oh, how proud John McCain must feel to head such a fine movement "for change."
