Remember the 2000 campaign when McQueeg was running against Bush? The whole thing got derailed when a lie was spread amongst the Republican party that McQueeg had fathered an out of wedlock black child that his family had taken in. First, the lie was racism. Secondly, the McQueeg family had done the noble thing of adopting a child from a third world country and providing her with a chance at a better life in the U.S. McQueeg and his campaign were outraged by this nasty, racist, cynical tactic from the Bush campaign, but it worked.
Guess what? McQueeg's campaign hired the guy behind the smear as the point person to manage Sarah Palin's campaign. McQueeg will do anything to get elected.
Obama and Biden better start fighting harder because at the moment, they've lost momentum and they've got some dirty opponents. Hiring this scumbag is but one reason why the lies are flying fast and furious right now. Obama's hiring of the failed representatives of the Clinton/Gore camp may explain why he's not ahead right now.
