McCain Against Protecting Children From Pedophiles

Is that headline a lie? Nope. The latest McCain attack ad says that Obama wanted to have "sex education" for preschoolers before they could read. The reality was his bill would provide age appropriate education and for preschoolers that would be about protecting them from pedophiles and inappropriate touching.

McCain and his team got rightly criticized for the TV ad.

"It is shameful and downright perverse for the McCain campaign to use a bill that was written to protect young children from sexual predators as a recycled and discredited political attack against a father of two young girls - a position that his friend Mitt Romney also holds. Last week, John McCain told Time magazine he couldn't define what honor was. Now we know why," said Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton.
