McCain’s Health Attcked, ad from group run by Howard Dean’s brother

Posted on: September 26, 2008

Update: You can see a report by Sanjay Gupta on CNN using this link: 

“Sen. McCain enjoys excellent health and displays extraordinary energy, and, while it is impossible to predict any person’s future health, I and my colleagues can find no medical reason or problem that would preclude Sen. McCain from fulfilling all of the duties or obligations of the president of the United States,” said Dr. John D. Eckstein

John McCain is one very healthy 71 year old, thank you for your concern, Dr. Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Please tell your brother not to worry, but his concern is appreciated. You see, McCain has been getting his annual physicals quite regularly in Scottsdale, Arizona. He is fit as a fiddle. Oh, and you Lib-loggers can also stop your phony sqeamishness about Sarah, she is quite capable and ready too, to be a veep.

The 30-second ad, so far airing for $50,000 only on MSNBC, is paid for by Brave New PAC and Democracy for America, a political group headed by James Dean, the brother of Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean. Chicago Sun-Times

This is the new ad focussing on McCain’s medical history of skin cancer and  running  only on MSNBC:

Showing vivid and unflattering images of the fresh scar that appeared on Senator McCain’s face immediately after his last operation for melanoma skin cancer eight years ago, the commercial ends with a screen headline that reads, “Why won’t John McCain release his medical records?”

Officials at the groups, both of which are political action committees that rely on individual donors, said they hoped to show the spot on stations in battleground states in the coming weeks as well. But it is unclear if individual stations will accept the spot: Leighton Akio Woodhouse, a spokesman for Brave New PAC, said late Wednesday that CNN declined to accept the commercial after reviewing its contents this week.
Daniel Medress, a spokesman for Democracy for America, said James Dean has not spoken with his brother about his activities at the group, which Howard Dean started in 2004. “We don’t coordinate with them,’’ Mr. Medress said of the Democratic National Committee, adding that at family dinners the Dean brothers, “sit there and make small talk, because they can’t talk about their jobs.”

Danny Diaz, a Republican National Committee spokesman, said, “The fact that Howard Dean’s brother and an adviser to the Obama campaign are behind despicable and cheap smear ads against Senator McCain is deeply disappointing, but in no way surprising. Barack Obama has promised Americans an elevated debate offering nothing but gutter, Chicago-style politics.”

The Caucus, NYT

As someone in public life since the Vietnam War, just about every event in his life has been on public view, if not in limelight. There are no hidden parts or unknown parts to his life, as he has been in media sights for ever.

On May 23, a small group of reporters were sequestered in a reading room outside of Phoenix, Ariz., and given several hours to review 1,173 pages of McCain’s medical records spanning from 2000 to 2008. In 2000, during McCain’s first presidential bid, his campaign released hundreds of pages of medical records including psychological tests run after his prisoner of war confinement.
There is in fact a precedent for releasing medical and other records in a highly supervised and time-limited way. In 2004, a small group of reporters traveling with John Kerry were allowed a half-hour to review 36 pages of his military medical records.
 CBS News

Will McCain bring up these ads and demand that Obama condemn them in tonight’s debate? Will Obama himself offer to release his won medical records, after all what we have from him is one single page letter from his doctor?

Brave New Films is a group that ran a signature campaign against Fox News for commenting about Michelle Obama’s words, and campaign speeches. They make slick videos, with fast cutting, juxtapositions, and pointed attacks. The have a strong web presence, are a very savy and vigorous player in Youtube Activism. and have attacked McCain before.  They are known for their action-demanding tagline that ends all works: pssst, do something.

So now,  CNN refused, but MSNBC agreed to run this ad? 

Humm, Makes me a believer in genetic mutation: the NBC peacock has given birth to a turkey in MSNBC

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]

    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]

    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]

    Where does acting end and reality begin? In a movie now in rotation on HBO, actress Allison Williams, the daughter of MSNBC anchor Brian Williams, declares: “My dad would have voted for Obama a third time if he could have. Like, the love is so real.” Sounds perfectly plausible that such sentiment would apply to her real life father, the disgraced ousted anch […]
