I’m sure the Democrats will blow a collective gasket over this latest John McCain ad . But really, aside from Moses, the images and rhetoric are straight out of Barack Obama’s mouth. The interesting thing about these humor pieces is that there is really no response other than: “Knock it off !”
Obama does say these ludicrous things and he can hardly grouse when it’s played back to him. (The Obama camp claims that they are “sad” about the ad. I suppose that’s better than the old favorite — “disappointed” — or the overused “outraged,”)
And let’s face it, it appears something is working. Whether it is the newly aggressive and pop culture-sensitive McCain ad approach, McCain’s energy message or the queasy sense that Obama’s overseas trip was overkill, McCain is in the hunt people are laughing at his opponent. Who would have thought?
