New angle of attack  

This new anti-Obama ad released by the McCain campaign implies that Obama is nothing more than a celebrity with no substance. The real kicker: the ad compares Obama to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton.

REALLY?! I have a couple problems with this. First of all, WHY are we even talking about teen idols in political advertisements? The two are not relevant, and should not be compared if either candidate wants to be taken seriously. Second of all, let's look at what these "celebrities" are famous for. Britney Spears is known for her train wreck of a lifestyle - inexplicably shaving her head, becoming a huge party girl, driving with her baby on her lap, flashing her crotch to the paparazzi, etc. Paris Hilton is known for being a girl who never had to work a day in her life, wears revealing clothing, and made a sex tape.

I'm sorry... where is the connection to Barack Obama? How is this advertisement legitimate? To me, it's not.

What next?

    HAAA you know what? I think when people see that, they'll realize how ridiculous it is. At least, I hope so...

    I was wondering when McCain would come out with a "Please vote for me even though I'm not popular" campaign.. he's probz jealous cuz nobody fucking actually likes him (as a politician or a person).

    Though I guess you could see the britney-paris-obama connection... I mean britney and paris are all about higher taxes and no offshore drilling.. aren't they? Cuz that's pretty much all the video talked about.

    Britney Spears and Paris Hilton don't even know what "politics" means.

    Britney Spears once said "we should all support the President no matter what, because he's the President" when asked what she thought about Bush. (Basically, saying she's conservative without saying it.)

    Paris Hilton participated in the Vote or Die campaign - and then didn't vote herself.

    Haaaahahaa my favorite part is the very end with the sunlight-bathed John McCain and the shiny happy music playing.

    John McCain is a grossly pernicious epidemic which, in my good judgment, should not be allowed to plague the nation for the next 4 or 8 years. Need I say more.
