Same Old South Carolina Story for McCain

Upon resuming his 2008 campaigning in South Carolina, John McCain quickly came to a distressing realization: the smear tactics that damaged his chances of winning South Carolina in 2000 and ultimately led to his demise in the primaries has resumed itself eight years later. There are a smattering of untruthful stories spreading like wildfires around the state this week, including that McCain had sold out a POW in Vietnam to save himself and that McCain has voted to use unborn babies in medical research. Mike Huckabee has denied connection to the interest group that made up the latter of the two and spread it via a million automated telephone calls to households. McCain is employing a truth squad to combat by intercepting the attacks before there is much damage.
