More McSame Chickenery

Barack Obama makes an entirely reasonable point:

I am surprised that, you know, we've been seeing some pretty over-the-top attacks coming out of the McCain campaign over the last several days, that he wasn't willing to say it to my face. But I guess we've got one last debate. So presumably, if he ends up feeling that he needs to, he will raise it during the debate.
Obama goes on to talk about how his campaign, his self-authored books, [not to mention his breakfast choices] have been on display for at least the last two years now, and he's not really much of a mystery anymore. I would add that the fact that McCain's gone from characterizing Obama as being an egg-head elitist to being a know-nothing celebrity to being a true-blue terrorist-lover really says a lot more about McCain's character than it does about Obama's. And what's more is that McCain talks tough behind his back but seems unwilling to confront Obama face-to-face:
John McCain is not man enough to own his shit. John McCain will not openly confront Obama with his smears and lies and innuendo. John McCain will not come out and talk about Ayers, he has to be asked. That is why he goes to places like Fox News, so he can be asked. What a coincidence.

John McCain is a coward.

John McCain would rather hide behind his wife and Sarah Palin than say it himself.

He would rather produce 2 minute ads that his campaign will never pay to air anywhere, and hope that the tire-swinging media will bring up the topic so he doesn’t have to do it himself.
John McCain is a coward.

This element of McCain's character (or lack thereof) fits in quite nicely with the overall Republican foreign policy strategery of passive aggression toward our adversaries. In fact, I remember quite well when Obama called John McCoward out once before for his and Bush's unwillingness to talk to tin pot dictators:
For all their tough talk, one of the things you have to ask yourself is, "What are George Bush and John McCain afraid of?".
Or in other words:

Kokokaw, kokokaw, kokokaw...chickens don't clap!
In all seriousness, though, it's exactly McCain's kind of irresponsible, nearly unhinged rhetoric that this country needs to get away from.
