I wonder if McCain even realizes when he lies

If the stakes weren’t so serious, McCain’s campaign would be pretty funny right now.

As it is each new gaffe, lie, etc., is just a little sad.

From the TPM Election Central link:

When asked whether he blamed Dems and Obama for the bailout collapse yesterday, McCain said “no.”

But yesterday McCain said: “Senator Obama and his allies in Congress infused unnecessary partisanship into the process.”

As for McCain’s claim to ABC today that “history will judge who was to blame,” the McCain campaign released an ad today that … blamed Dems and Obama.

So yesterday McCain blames Obama and Dems while calling for no more fingerpointing. Today he denies having blamed them while releasing an ad blaming them.

The untruths are getting almost too convoluted to track at this point — it’s a bit like being trapped in a falsehood fun-house or something.
