The Democrats last week were trying to portray John McCain as a 'clone' of George W Bush.
Media allies such as the UK-based Independent, which like the NZ Herald, is owned by Irish media tycoon Tony O'Reilly, so similar tales make our paper too, led a similar charge.
UK Blogger Dizzy Thinks looks at how the Independent accuses McCain of being a Bush clone with this cartoon this week.
But, as he notes ,even the Independent's own archives show Bush and McCain have often been at loggerheads over various issues.
Indeed, putting such leftist myopia aside, isn't this the reason why so many US Conservatives were unimpressed with McCain to begin with!
So trust the Democrats and their leftist media allies to get it so wrong once more!
UPDATE: Something for Barnsley Bill to enjoy. Calm down Adolf, I know she's hot!
UPDATE 2 Palin more popular than McCain, Obama and Biden.
UPDATE 3: I may be taking the Michael, but maybe this Palin should run for office.
