Ok, we’ve all scene the hideous, sarcastic commercials John McCain has been putting out. Bob Herbert, to some degree, talks about it in this article. To quote:
“Now, from the hapless but increasingly venomous McCain campaign, comes the slimy Britney Spears and Paris Hilton ad. The two highly sexualized women (both notorious for displaying themselves to the paparazzi while not wearing underwear) are shown briefly and incongruously at the beginning of a commercial critical of Mr. Obama.”
It’s all no big surprise I suppose. But what is a surprise is how effective these ads have been. Obama’s poll numbers have come down so that the two candidates are basically tied. Scary. Very, very scary. Because McCain is the guy who will very likely get us involved in a war with Iran if elected. And that is nothing to take lightly. Iran, after all, is much more of a military power than Iraq was. And it is not like we haven’t lost enough soldiers in Iraq.
So, if you know anyone who is planning on voting for McCain, try to convince them otherwise.
To paraphrase: Friends don’t let friends vote McCain.
