John Mercurio for National Journal:

An exaggeration, you say? The senseless ravings of yet another Obama-loving member of the media elite? Consider this: The absurdity has grown so absurd that FactCheck.org, a widely respected, nonpartisan, truth-telling fact-checker, was forced to issue a statement Wednesday saying the McCain campaign was being “less than honest” in a new TV ad citing the group’s own work. It’s now an objective observation: McCain’s campaign is playing by its own rules, with its own facts.

McCain is certainly playing with his own facts, but he’s playing by the rules laid out by the major cable networks.
