The good thing about the McCain campaign, though, the one good thing about it has been that now voters are coming to recognize Rovian-style manipulation when they see it and hear it. It worked in the 90s, it worked in 2000 and 2004, but I think the volk are - mostly - starting to get the general idea.

In 2012 with even more people online able to access and parse information and disinformation it'll be even better. Imagine politicians having to just tell the truth.

That editorial is REALLY harsh! There's only one (agreeing) comment so far, but it'd be interesting to read all the Arizonan comments it attracts.
