Bob McCullogh, Clown Prosecutor

Not sure what this is.

The Barack Obama campaign is asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign.

Apparently they've got some prosecutors and sheriffs involved, including Bob McCulloch (above), who wants voters to know that Barack Obama is a Christian who wants to cut taxes on anyone who makes under $250,000.00 a year.

Um, Bob, arrest yourself. OK, maybe don't, because technically Obama might, in theory, want to cut taxes for anyone making under $250,000.00 a year. We can't prove he doesn't want to do it. One thing is for sure though. It's never going to happen. Bill Clinton "wanted" to cut taxes for the middle class. The key word is wanted. I don't think a single Democrat has cut taxes since JFK. They talk a good game, but in the end they want to spend money more than they want to give you a tax break. It's never going to happen, Bob.

But all that aside, just when did it become OK for someone in law enforcement to enforce the laws for one candidate and not the other? This is the "Barack Obama Truth Squad". Do you go to the Barack Obama jail if Bob thinks you lied about his candidate? And just what law might you be violating? (apart from the usual don't-piss-off-the-sheriff law) Also, does John McCain need to get his own sheriffs and prosecutors?

It's silliness, sure. This isn't eastern Europe right? We don't really have thug law enforcement favoring one candidate over another. Right?
