The perfect ending to a stretch in which The One not only ran more negative ads than McCain did, but demagogued him with a race-baiting spot aimed at Hispanics that went so far over the top even Obama mega-shill Joe Klein begged him to take it down. All of this, mind you, while his surrogates were out on the trail smearing Republicans as racists.

Exit question: Which lines specifically, do you suppose, did Al Franken contribute?

Update: The McCain camp’s circulating this editorial from a New Hampshire paper laying Obama out for his recent dishonesty. Oh, and look: Here’s another lie now.
