John McCain ... Serial Liar

Don Sipple, a Republican advertising strategist, voiced his concern that John McCain's current lying approach in paid advertising could backfire:
"Any campaign that is taking liberty with the truth and does it in a serial manner will end up paying for it in the end," he said. "But it's very unbecoming to a political figure like John McCain whose flag was planted long ago in ground that was about 'straight talk' and integrity."

After McCain's appearance on "The View" yesterday, during which he puffed up like a self-inflating bladder at the suggestion that he was lying about his opponent, the Obama campaign issued this strong statement:
In running the sleaziest campaign since South Carolina in 2000 and standing by completely debunked lies on national television, it's clear that John McCain would rather lose his integrity than lose an election.

Not that strongly worded statements count for a hill of overcooked beans.
