Different Debate, Same Old BS

I just found a post written before the second presidential debate, which says:

At some point in tonight's debate, John McCain will falsely accuse Barack Obama of planning to raise taxes on most, if not all, Americans (I expect a rehash of the debunked tax raise on families earning over $42,000 claim - McCain's not one to let fact checkers interrupt his flow). McCain will follow this allegation with a plaintive warning to the American people that raising taxes costs jobs. "We know this," McCain will say with saddened expression.

As Eric Martin, who wrote that paragraph, I am also sure that McCain won't let facts get in the way of his tirades. But do yourself a favor, and read the rest of Martin's quite well-crafted exercise in spin deconstruction.
