Obama and McCain are negative, but the devil's in the details

I'm pissed that Obama's going negative.

The "media" has recently been given to saying that Obama runs 77% negative ads vs. McCain's 56%. Given that the last few emails I've received from the Obama campaign have been pretty damn idiotic (using Karl Rove as an information source?!) I tended to agree that Obama's been having dinner with Cheney and Co.

Turns out the truth is far more interesting:
Op Ad: Obama More Negative Than McCain?

The really annoying thing here is that it took me 30 minutes of research to figure out whether there's anything real to the 77% number. This US politics thing really is a PITA!!
