McCain Campaign Brings On Board Yet Another Operative McCain Once Blamed For Sliming Him During 2000 South Carolina Primary

ABC News has learned that Warren Tompkins, one of the strategists of then-Gov. George W. Bush's South Carolina campaign in 2000 -- which Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., blamed for his family being slimed -- is now a part of the McCain-Palin campaign team, albeit in an "unofficial" role.
Tompkins, a protégé of Lee Atwater, has been dispatched to North Carolina to assess the state for the McCain-Palin campaign, Southern GOP strategists tell ABC News.
The McCain campaign says only that Tompkins has "no official role" with the campaign. The Raleigh News and Observer spotted Tompkins in the state "surveying North Carolina for the McCain campaign to determine what can be done to shore up the state."

The GOP is calling in all the dirtiest of their rats for the final spasm of filth.

"The news of Tompkins being brought on board the McCain campaign brings to a total of three the number of GOP operatives McCain now is using despite the fact that he once held them responsible for the ugly campaign that contributed to his South Carolina primary defeat, a campaign in which McCain's wife Cindy was attacked for her past addiction to painkillers, and the McCains' adopted Bangladeshi daughter Bridget was targeted as his illegitimate black baby."

Hmmm.... when you bring in an advisor but go to pains to say from the beginning that he has "no official role" you just know something slimey is afoot. Obviously, the moment the nastiness isn't received well, they plan to throw him under the bus and talk about how he had "no official role."

Not only that, but with internet forums, etc. underhanded tactics just aren't as effective. You can see 'em coming and easily spread the word. Which means the methods that used to work have now lost a lot of the punch and just become something to mock.
