FUCK YA!

NotUrEvryDayWEzl August 1, 2008 at 1:53 pm

That’s hot.

jagorev August 1, 2008 at 1:56 pm

I look forward to McCain’s riposte: BOMB IRAN. BOMB IRAN. BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB IRAN.

supremecourtjester August 1, 2008 at 2:00 pm

Paris Hilton’s father and grandfather gave McCain and the other mixed nuts in the Republican dish on the bar a lot of money–and they aren’t so proud of the commercial. Sometimes you just gotta throw a big contributor’s granddaughter under the Straight Talk Express to make a point.

What a pathetic, shriveled up old douchenozzle.

WOW, im speechless.

NebraskashireGentry August 1, 2008 at 2:07 pm

do I apply this directly to my forehead?

Anonymous Office Zombie August 1, 2008 at 2:08 pm

Subtlety? Please – the Democrats are actually trying to win this one, which means reaching out beyond the fold into those vast resevoirs of the ignorant masses. Under those circumstances the sledge hammer of the obvious becomes just the right tool for the job.

Scarab August 1, 2008 at 2:11 pm

That ad is what passes for clever in Republican circles.

greatgooglymoogly August 1, 2008 at 2:13 pm

“I’m also proud of my underwear, this microphone, Thursdays, applesauce, the Green Bay Packers, widgets, an occasional erection, the ninja mutant teenager turtle whatevers, Hallmark greeting cards, sushi, claustrophobia, red clay, and um, my um … my … well, something else, anyway. I’m John McCain, I’m totally out to sea, and I’m proud of that, too.”

junkscience August 1, 2008 at 2:14 pm

that was trippy

StripesAndPlaids August 1, 2008 at 2:16 pm

Finally the DNC has figured out that a short message repeated endlessly is all teh ‘mericun peoples can handle. But if it had been me, I’d gone shorter: “McCain Blows.”

RuperttheBear August 1, 2008 at 2:16 pm

What’s that sizzling sound? Is it OUTBACK TONIGHT? I LUV STEAKS!

KevoTron August 1, 2008 at 2:16 pm

[re=50215]NebraskashireGentry[/re]: nice.

I kept expecting Jerry Springer to come out and tell that lady that John is not the father of her son.

Neilist August 1, 2008 at 2:19 pm

/Snark off

BRAVO!

I mean, really . . . Bravo.

Good darts. Well shot. Nicely played, old bean.

Norbert August 1, 2008 at 2:21 pm

mercy is for the weak.

Godot August 1, 2008 at 2:22 pm

The DNC actually didn’t loop footage there. McCain’s Manchurian Candidate controlling system (surgically implanted in his jaw, naturally) shorted out. He was going on like that for a good 5 minutes.

wonk_the_heck August 1, 2008 at 2:28 pm

It’s about time those retarded Republicans catch on that Bambi
is popular. I just wonder if pride in telling the rest of the
world to fuck off will trump the need to be adored by non-americans.

glamourdammerung August 1, 2008 at 2:29 pm

Nice to see the Democrats actually trying to win this one.

Hooray For Anything August 1, 2008 at 2:30 pm

Non-subtle, yes, but maybe a bit too meta. Maybe they should have showed him saying “Czechoslovakia” over and over again with the words “He’s old” flashing over and over again. Or show him not understanding the difference between sunnis and shiites and flash the words “He’s an idiot” over and over again. Or mahybe pictures of him knocking over those cans in the supermarket and flash the words “He’s a loser” over and over again.

Tawmn August 1, 2008 at 2:31 pm

Hunnert Dollars, Hunnert Dollars, Hunnert Dollars, Hunnert Dollars, Hunnert Dollars, Hunnert Dollars, Hunnert Dollars, Hunnert Dollars, Hunnert Dollars…

Count Snarkula August 1, 2008 at 2:40 pm

I really expected at the end that girl was going to put her hand on her hip, swing her head to the side, and say “…and I said, no ya’ll dit’nt…” She had the tone and was geared up, she just wussed out at the very end. Trollop.

NotUrEvryDayWEzl August 1, 2008 at 2:43 pm

[re=50246]Neilist[/re]: Because I’m a snarky asshole, your faux html tags actually activated snark in the first section and deactivated in the second, leading me to believe that you’d vote for that ticket

/douchebaggery

Well, surprise! I’d vote for that! Can you imagine all the fantastic news we’d get for eight years?

sati demise August 1, 2008 at 2:45 pm

A Hopey covert operative got into the McCain town hall and actually asked a question?

Mission accomplished!
Now she has to go into the undercover protection program for the rest of her life.

AxmxZ August 1, 2008 at 2:58 pm

Jesus, it’s like a suppository of FAIL.

Anita Cocktail August 1, 2008 at 3:00 pm

[re=50261]Hooray For Anything[/re]: Yeah, right, like Joe and Jane SixPack know from Czecheslovakia?

WadISay August 1, 2008 at 3:05 pm

John McCain does not speak for the 2008 Campaign of the Republican Nominee.

problemwithcaring August 1, 2008 at 3:57 pm

[re=50323]WadISay[/re]: You do know that his campaign aides actually said that, right?

BadNewsJack August 1, 2008 at 4:17 pm

Next thing you know, the DNC will be comparing McCain to Ethel Merman and Ella Fitzgerald.

shortsshortsshorts August 1, 2008 at 5:32 pm

[re=50429]problemwithcaring[/re]: You should drink some Ovaltine. DRINK IT.

The Station Manager August 1, 2008 at 6:52 pm

Now I could be wrong, but I think that they would like to emphasize that McCain is “proud of that commercial”. Just a guess.

The 3-Legged Man August 2, 2008 at 2:53 am

Not ashamed to admit that Paris gives me the horn.

Borat August 2, 2008 at 4:42 am

walnuts ought to be proud of that commercial. its a great tecknologies – just think of it as a radio with MOVING PICTURES amazing what those whippersnappers are coming up with these days. unfortunately americans are no longer the leaders in the radio assemblys anymore. we’ve got to once again take control of this important industry and bring them manufacturing jobs back to america. i can’t sleep at night knowing that some other country controls the means of radio prodcution and moving picture radio production.

defeatism August 2, 2008 at 5:31 am

When the fuck did the DNC grow a spine? Daddy is PROUD.

schvitzatura August 2, 2008 at 6:54 am

[re=50814]defeatism[/re]: Hojo Dean is what done brung it. He cwaaazy!

bago August 2, 2008 at 11:28 am

Head on! Apply directly to the campaign!
Head on! Apply directly to the campaign!
Head on! Apply directly to the campaign!

villageatrois August 2, 2008 at 12:36 pm

[re=50246]Neilist[/re]: McCain/Hilton has a certain… uh, connotation, that McGrumpy may want to endlessly emphasize.
