Ad Wars

Things are heating up down south as John McCain's latest ad brands him as "the original maverick" (and here I thought that was James Garner) and proclaims "we're worse off now than we were four years ago." Serves Americans right for electing a Democrat to the White House in 2004!



This, of course, comes hot on the heels of McCain's "everybody loves my opponent" ad, which has generated this response:

And here's the McCain response to Paris' response:

Hilton's video is a good-humored attempt at spoofing the first ad, but representatives for McCain's campaign nevertheless immediately responded to the clip on TMZ.com.

"Sounds like Paris is taking the 'All of the Above' energy approach that John McCain has advocated — both alternatives and drilling," spokesman Tucker Bounds told the gossip site. "Perhaps the reality is that Paris has a more substantive energy plan than Barack Obama."


There are two things I love about this quote by Tucker Bounds (three if you include the name "Tucker Bounds"):

1. The McCain campaign is spinning for a gossip site.

2. They are spinning that Paris and John advocate the same position on energy policy.

  • Is "Paris' poisition on off-shore drilling" a euphemism for something?

  • Did McCain hire the Liberal Party's ad firm? The celeb ad has a "we are not making this up" vibe to it.

  • alex, the difference is that McCain's ad actually gave him a bit of a bump.

    My friend Stefan had the best comment about the Berlin rally.

    "Anytime 200 000 Germans are chanting anybody's name, you have to be a little worried."

    He's an Obama supporter too.

  • I love the heart on the "i" of Paris on her campaign banner. Really well done.

  • Somebody's going to have to break it to Paris that Rihanna was born in Barbados and accordingly is ineligible to run for VP (or Prez).

  • And Paris isn't 35 either.

    But if John McCain can be President, then Rihanna should be just fine even with the Barbados birth.
