From The New York Times:
The McCain campaign’s recent angry tone and sharply personal attacks on Senator Barack Obama appear to have backfired and tarnished Senator John McCain more than their intended target, the latest New York Times/CBS News poll has found.

Sen. Joe Biden said Wednesday that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has gone “way too far” in her attacks against Barack Obama.
“It’s just malarkey, flat malarkey,” Biden said on CBS’s “Early Show” of Palin’s attacks linking Barack Obama to former 1960’s radical William Ayers.
“You know, the idea here that somehow these guys are, once again, injecting fear and loathing into this campaign I think is mildly dangerous,” Biden added.
“I mean, some of the stuff she’s saying about Barack Obama and the stuff that people are yelling from the crowd, if she hears it, she should be at least saying, whoa, whoa, whoa; that’s overboard. I mean, you know, this is — this is volatile stuff. And it’s — I just — I felt we were kind of beyond this place that it seems to be going.”

(CNN) — Sen. Barack Obama on Sunday charged that Sen. John McCain’s campaign is launching “Swift boat-style attacks” on him instead of addressing the country’s problems.
“Sen. McCain and his operatives are gambling that they can distract you with smears rather than talk to you about substance. They’d rather try to tear our campaign down than lift this country up,” Obama said at an event in Asheville, North Carolina.
“That’s what you do when you’re out of touch, out of ideas, and running out of time,” he said.
The comments come a day after Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, McCain’s running mate, claimed that Obama associated “with terrorists who targeted our own country.”
