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

    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.

    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.

    “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.”

  7. StripesAndPlaids

    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.”

    [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.

    BRAVO!

    I mean, really . . . Bravo.

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

    MCAIN/SPEARS IN 08: America Deserves TWO Crazy Douchbags!

  10. Godot

    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.

  11. wonk_the_heck

    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.

  12. Hooray For Anything

    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.

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

    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.

  15. NotUrEvryDayWEzl

    [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?

  16. sati demise

    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.

  17. Anita Cocktail

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

  18. problemwithcaring

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

  19. BadNewsJack

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

  20. The Station Manager

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

  21. Borat

    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.

    Head on! Apply directly to the campaign!

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