Glad to see that Jake Tapper is not going to roll over in the face of constant lies from the McCain campaign:

The most controversial item in the McCain ad is the assertion that Obama supports children "learning about sex before learning to read," and the accusation that Obama's "one accomplishment" on education was "legislation to teach 'comprehensive sex education' to kindergarteners." But both claims are false. The idea seems to be to paint Obama as an insanely liberal sleaze ball who wants to teach young kids who don’t even know how to read all about graphic sexual information. That's not fair and it's not accurate. One can only imagine what the John McCain of 2004 – who called the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth ads “dishonest and dishonorable” – would say about this ad.

John McCain is dishonest and dishonorable. That much we now know.
