Here's Obama's latest ad; I like it but I think he should spend more time letting people know that his tax cuts will affect the middle class while the hikes only affect those at the upper end of the income scale (contrary to what McCain's ads claim):

Nobody believes me about the proposed Obama taxes being lower than McCain's... even when I show them the numbers.

That's a testament to the success of the right-wing noise machine in framing the narrative of American politics; they're just much better at it than the left is. So much better that, as you say, even when confronted with hard numbers and irrefutable proof people cling to the old cliche that the Democrat will definitely raise your taxes while the Republican will always lower them.

Sadly, I'd say that it's also a testament to the intellectual laziness of the average American who would rather have someone tell them what's true instead of doing the work and finding out for themselves. Props to you for constantly doing the latter despite your self-professed disinterest in politics.
