Factcheck.org has an analysis out that takes a look at each part of the ad ("Good-looking", "Marching orders" and "Disrespectful") and found each to be, well, "particularly egregious" and:
The McCain-Palin campaign has released a new TV ad that distorts quotes from the Obama campaign. It takes words out of context to make it sound as though the Democratic ticket is belittling Palin.The "good looking" part is from this interview with Joe Biden, who's quoted by ABC News as saying this:
For the humor-challenged out there, Joe Biden was actually saying two things when he pointed out the one obvious difference between he and Palin: She's good looking and he isn't. Well THAT'S certainly disrespectful.
"From our perspective the whole deal is how does the government help you get back up without getting in the way?" Biden asked. "There's a gigantic - gigantic - difference between John McCain and Barack Obama, and between me and I suspect my vice presidential opponent. And that is that - "
The crowd laughed.
"Well there's obvious differences," Biden said, beginning to ham it up. "She's good looking," he said, laughing.
By the way, the same ABC piece has Rush Limbaugh himself call Palin "a babe."
The "Marching orders" part comes from this article at The Politico:
Then there the charge that Obama is being disrespectful for calling Sarah Palin a liar.
“Right down the line,” he said. “She tried to attack Obama by saying he had no significant legislative accomplishments — maybe that’s what she was told — but she should talk to Sen. Lugar, talk to Sen. Coburn, talk to people across the aisle in Illinois where he passed dozens of major laws to expand health care reform welfare, reduce taxes on working families. So I think she had an assignment and she went out and she discharged it.” [emphasis added]
But, she is. She supported the so-called "bridge to nowhere" (and campaigned on it) before Congress pulled the plug on the funding. Factcheck.org even says so:
Palin may have said “Thanks, but no thanks” on the Bridge to Nowhere, though not until Congress had pretty much killed it already. But that was a sharp turnaround from the position she took during her gubernatorial campaign, and the town where she was mayor received lots of earmarks during her tenure.So what's disrespectful there?
