52 Days: Action Edition

The media is almost there in terms of calling McCain what he is--a habitual liar, who, as the Barack Obama campaign pointed out, would
"rather lose his integrity than lose an election".
As DemFromCT showed us in Your Abbreviated Pundit Round-up, McCain's daily and deliberate distortions are not getting a free pass in the press anymore.
Today's New York Times uses every word but the "l" word:
Harsh advertisements and negative attacks are a staple of presidential campaigns, but Senator John McCain has drawn an avalanche of criticism this week from Democrats, independent groups and even some Republicans for regularly stretching the truth in attacking Senator Barack Obama's record and positions.
And user VirginiaDem brings us a scathing video
debunking McCain's lies (video below the fold)
But a smattering of articles and a great video calling out John McCain on his lies isn't enough. How many email forwards have you received from your right-wing family and friends that are filled with lies? The conservative right has perfected the art of spreading lies via email networks. And now it's our turn to spread the truth via the same method.
So today's action item is relatively simple, and it's tied to a new Newsweek poll. In that poll, McCain and Obama are tied,
46%-46%. But let's dig out the key numbers for today's action item:
On a signature Obama issue, the war in Iraq, the Republican nominee now leads his Democratic opponent 51 percent to 41 percent, a marked change from an April NEWSWEEK Poll, which had Obama leading McCain on the issue, 54 percent to 34 percent.
That's a ten point lead for the candidate who wants a U.S. presence in Iraq for 100 years, who has no exit strategy, and who has promised "more wars." In other words, it's a ten point lead for the man who is lying about his ability to handle that conflict in a responsible manner.
So today's action item is to forward either
the New York Times article or the viral video to ten of your family members and friends. Preferably, target both Obama supporters but also those very people who send you those hideous right-wing chain emails (which are usually sent out of ignorance). Tell them to pass it on to 10 of their friends and family as well.
