Women, Seniors, Handicapped Veterans, oh my

It's official, Barack Obama's campaign has lost its collective mind.

This morning the McCain campaign release an ad called disrespected.

The Obama campaign fought back hard with an ad that implied that Senator McCain is not hip and with it since he doesn't know how to use email. (This is what McCain's comeback should be: "This is coming from a guy who won't interact with me in a series of townhall meetings. Does he really think that you win the presidency by emailing it in?")

I can't imagine that the Obama ad is going to go over well in Florida, Nevada, or Pennsylvania, where there are large populations of non-internet savvy senior citizens who vote. Here's what some people, like my own parents, may think after viewing these two ads: Obama and Biden disrespect women, and now senior citizens.

But it got worse. During the day several bloggers discovered that the reason why Senator McCain does not send email himself is that his war injuries prevent him from doing so: "McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain's severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes." That's from a 2000 Boston Globe story that any half-wit connected to Google could have found. And that same half-wit would have likely also found this, from a 2000 piece in Forbes:

In certain ways, McCain was a natural Web candidate. Chairman of the Senate Telecommunications Subcommittee and regarded as the U.S. Senate's savviest technologist, McCain is an inveterate devotee of email. His nightly ritual is to read his email together with his wife, Cindy. The injuries he incurred as a Vietnam POW make it painful for McCain to type. Instead, he dictates responses that his wife types on a laptop. "She's a whiz on the keyboard, and I'm so laborious," McCain admits.

Yet, the fact that this information was just a couple of Google clicks away for any one with minimal internet skills did not stop Obama spokesman Dan Pfeiffer from saying today on Real Clear Politics: "It's extraordinary that someone who wants to be our president and our commander in chief doesn't know how to send an e-mail."

So, not content with disrespecting women and seniors, the Obama campaign has moved on to mocking injured war veterans.

"It's official, Barack Obama's campaign has lost its collective mind."

No kidding. Problem is, they are not alone.

Is anyone keeping score? What segment of the American population remains not insulted by the Obama campaign.

President FDR commanded US forces in simultaneous wars against Germany and Japan, in the midst of a crippling Depression, and he managed all of this rather stunningly from his wheelchair--has history, too, been deleted from the schools along with the arts?

Buchanan on Catholics for Obama -- I guess you all have seen this? If not, maybe it deserves a post of its own.
