In light of news that John McCain and Sarah Palin will be campaigning for Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss, who faces a run-off election agaist Democratic challenger Jim Martin, Political Wire dug up this quote from McCain:
"I'd never seen anything like that ad. Putting pictures of Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden next to the picture of a man who left three limbs on the battlefield — it's worse than disgraceful. It's reprehensible."
– Sen. John McCain, quoted by CNN, on the campaign ads used by Saxby Chambliss (R) against Sen. Max Cleland (D-GA) in the 2002 U.S. Senate race.
I'd never seen anything like that Political Wire post. Putting the name of Max Cleland next to the name of a man who left all his integrity on the campaign trail — it's worse than disgraceful. It's reprehensible.
