Jumping the Shark

I know I keep saying the McCain campaign has got to be jumping the shark with the press 2 or 3 times a week, but this new ad does seem pretty egregious.

Not only does it repeat the clearly debunked claim that Palin “stopped the bridge to nowhere,” but the source it cites in making the claim doesn’t even say that. In other words, not only is the McCain campaign lying about Palin, they know they’re lying about Palin, and as such they’re forced to simply make up citations for these ads in the hope that no one will dare point out they’re lying through their teeth.

Surely the media will call out lies about, well, the media. Right?
