Guess Who’s Advertising In Arizona?

  maverick outgunned

Oh noes!Pampered, carpetbagging playboy John McCain’s “home” state of Arizona has gone dangerously pink in the last few days, and the Obama campaign is so awash in cash that they decided enh, what the hell, why not throw up some ads on the teevees in John McCain’s seventeen Phoenix mansion condos. So Obama will be airing some POSITIVE commercials there, to be classy. [First Read]

    Also, this, from the liberal Kos internet website:

    If the 2010 election for U.S. Senate were held today for whom would you vote for if the choices were between Janet Napolitano the Democrat and John McCain the Republican?

    McCain (R) 45
    Napolitano (D) 53

    After coming to this site for a week, I look at that picture and feel it needs a caption in huge capital letters…

    HEHNGNN?!!!!

    Obama is just being an asshole and forcing Walnuts! to defend his own state. This unpussification of the democratic party is certainly change I believe in.

    McCain has been ignoring us here in Phoenix and when he came home early he saw we were all in bed “That One”.
    He is trying to win us back but we’re in love and it just happened, we didn’t plan on it and we never meant to hurt him.

  5. paigow

    Next step, sending people to McCain rallies and having them hold out cash. When McCain reaches for the money, they’re all “PSYCHE! BURNED!” and then they run away laughing and pushing each other over.

  6. nurple

    I’m wondering if McCain had plastic surgery and is having tear-ducting problems. Not uncommon. I’m not getting plasticked when I’m over 70. Get it while your skin is strong enuf to recover.

  7. V572625694

    [re=157959]everfade[/re]: Okay, but now you’ve got to give him half of everything. It won’t hurt a bit! You can find a nice one-bedroom for $600 a month, and live there until you get “settled.” Hahahah.

    [re=157967]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Quiet you

    [re=157967]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Yes, but it’s funny that they figure, “what the hell, let’s try it”. Doesn’t Shaq count as 3 votes anyway??

  10. Dave J.

    [re=157967]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Probably not, but he’s in Walnuts’ head to the point that Walnuts is, according to the most recent info, going to campaign in Arizona on Monday. Not Ohio, not Florida, not PA, but his own state. Which means at this point there’s a good chance that the objective is to save face, not win the election.

  11. Serolf Divad

    [re=157943]Dave J.[/re]:

    That’s ’cause McCain is boring old plain Vanilla, whereas Napolitano is Strawberry, Vanilla and Chocolate all in one. Who wouldn’t favor Napolitano?

  12. DoctorCulturae

    [re=157967]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Agreed. Tough to win AZ, but it could soften him up even more for his reelection fight in 2010. Who knows, if the Dems don’t get to 60 in the Senate this could be money well spent for the midterm.

    Looks like an awful lot of table setting is going on…

  13. Lascauxcaveman

    I’ve sent Hopey several hundreds of dollars via my MasterCard over the last several months.

    Knowing there’s an Obama ad playing on AZ teevee sets right now: Priceless.

  14. Spackle Camshaft Palin

    [re=157989]magic titty[/re]: No sir. I took that picture on the lower east side in NYC about 2 weeks ago.

  15. shortsshortsshorts

    [re=157980]Dave J.[/re]: Walnuts is still attacking with a vengeance in places like Missouri though! His robo-calls are apparently hilarious. Dane Cook is doing the fart joke he stole from that one guy.

    [re=157975]Worlds End[/re]: That was some hawt binary secksieness.

  16. Worlds End

    [re=157987]DoctorCulturae[/re]: I beleive i read on 538 over the next few election cycles we are going to try flip Texas. I somehow doubt it will happen.

  17. MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend

    [re=157967]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Agreed, and that’s why advertising there and forcing WALNUTS! to defend is the ultimate dick move. (And Fuckin’ Awesome!)

  18. magic titty

    [re=157995]Spackle Camshaft Palin[/re]: Then I stand corrected. Well done. Six whore diamonds for you.

  19. sarahconnor

    I would too if I were the classy love god Obama… will be tough for McCain to get out of this with any dignity at all, much less honor.

    Now drop and give me twenty, WALNUTS!

  20. larz

    Damn those southwest with all their pastel colors! Maybe they need to send Palin down there to incite a few lynchings or something.

  21. DoctorCulturae

    [re=157999]Worlds End[/re]: Difficult yes, but hope they start doing this is TX too. I suspect they’ve got the cash. I would sleep so well knowing my Hopey dollars are going toward pissing off Texnuts.

  22. Meth Lab for Cutie

    Obama is also advertising in Georgia (again). Could be bad news for Senator “Sissy Saxby” Chambliss.

  23. 3-legged Bloodhound

    ‘Arizona’…isn’t that name derived from the Greek word meaning “whale’s vagina?”

  24. shortsshortsshorts

    [re=158000]NoWireHangers[/re]: The local work is PASS IT. PASS IT NOW. And it will. We will name our sewage plant after GW right as Barry becomes our next President, because we are awesome.

  25. DoctorCulturae

    marge: Full court press with little time on the clock and a secure lead. Take the starch out their legs Hopemaster!

  26. Dave J.

    [re=158006]MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend[/re]: Definitely, going into AZ is an in-your-face-old-man move, kind of like when you dunk on a guy in basketball when you’ve got a 20 point lead in the 2nd half. No real point to it other than making him sit there with your balls in his face.

  27. Aquannissiwamissoo

    That McCain eyeball animation is what my mother was trying to warn me against in 7th grade when she said don’t mix airplane glue with microdot and tee and librium and hashish and jimson weed and 6th period physics and gym.

  28. slappypaddy

    [re=158018]larz[/re]: No, thank you, please. They prefer truck-draggings and hair-trigger policing, anyway. Lynching is so passe.

  29. wonkthis

    cal said: Love the “Wake up, Grandpa!” animation. Classic.

    Hey Wonkette webwizards, set your animated GIF to stop after the 3,000th time it loops. We GET IT.

  30. Cape Clod

    [re=157980]Dave J.[/re]: If Obama wanted to really get in McCains head, he should send a contribution to his campaign right now, and max out.

  31. HuskyMescan

    McCain’s gotta beat his feet in his own backyard. Harsh. This calls for double-ply Depends for extra long lasting absorption.

  32. MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend

    [re=158098]Cape Clod[/re]: Well, he planned on doing that, but McCain took public financing, haha.

  33. regisgoat

    [re=157957]The Church of Realism[/re]: I wish I could dub it with the “Popeye Fanfare”: Da DAH DAH DAH du DAH!

  34. wavingnotdrowning

    You say McCain is a carpetbagger. He might define himself as a cuntbagger married to a beer cuntess. A-cunting he will go. A-cunting he will go. High, ho, a trollop in tow, a cunting he will go.

  35. totoro

    It may be hubris but they are totally f*cking with Walnuts! now. Barry is not going to win AZ but he is basically taunting the old guy, forcing him to recognize that he is barely carrying his home state. Its a manhood thing. We are long overdue for a grand mal McCain public tantrum (see Des Moines interview) and this could set him off.

  36. Keram2

    [re=157976]Spackle Camshaft Palin[/re]: Oh yeah that’s real. That was all over the Beford stop in Williamsburg. Although advertising for Obama in Williamsburg is kinda futile. Most of those fucking hipsters won’t vote, and the other half will be to busy buying shitty, shitty fluorescent American Apparel Deep V t-shirts.

  37. DoctorCulturae

    [re=158229]totoro[/re]: Promise?

    He’s been getting pretty wound up at recent rallies. Would have loved to have heard his response to campaign workers after Joe da Plummah didn’t show up.

  38. Flying Monkey

    MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend, where did you get a copy of my first film?vhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_9HX5Mw_OI I was the third Obamazombie from the left. What can I say–I was young and needed the money…

  39. aristoggle

    And Georgia! He’s running ads in Georgia, too!!!

    I can hear Miss Pittypat now … “Obama in Georgia!?! How’d he ever get in!?!”

    Can’t see how he wins, but he’s at least stimulating our economy … and getting all my Rush-lovin’ in-laws’ blood pressure up!

  40. Datsun510

    Hold your horses everybody. The idea that Obama is spending here in AZ just to humiliate WALNUTS! is a swell thought, but you don’t know the half of it.
    1) Many locals, even conservatives, dislike McCain. From their perspective he has not done his job for the state. Not that they would give him a primary challenge. But I’m willing to bet many won’t go to the polls on Tuesday.
    2)The dem voter reg has been huge here. Volunteers here, including myself, are motivatd and well organized. The voter reg machine immediately became the Get Out The Vote machine. It is huge.
    3)Not the most accurate measure of anything, but Obama’s bumper stickers/lawn signs/t shirts outnumber McCain’s by 10:1, maybe 20:1.
    4) Early voting here is heavily in Obama’s favor.
    5) When McCain chose Apocalypstick as his running mate all the conservatives I know just stopped talking. period.
    I also think most of this applies nationally. I think GOP turnout will be very low. I think many old school conservatives are quietly disgusted with everything.
    McCain
    Palin
    Their strategy
    Their tactics
    His desparate, stupid decisions
    The fact many of them secretly know Obama is the far better choice.

  41. ClueHeywood

    [re=158418]Datsun510[/re]: I’m a fellow AZ resident who agrees with a lot of your analysis. First, locals (red and blue) have never been that enamored of McCain; the perception is that he’s a carpetbagging opportunist who fancies himself a national figure while ignoring local responsibilites. Second, dem registration is way up, but also consider the population explosion: 23% since 2000, and as my old man was fond of saying, “Dukes don’t emigrate.” These new residents could very well swing AZ closer to pink than the firm red it has been for many years. Finally, in my highly unscientific “drive around Phoenix” poll, the enthusiasm that drives people to wear apparel, post signs, and stick stickers is firmly in the Obama camp. And this is in right wing Phoenix–not in Tucson or Flagstaff, which Obama might have carried without advertising. An ad buy doesn’t hurt, can only help, and might very well take down McCain in his home state.

    BTW, a 10/29 Research 2000 poll has McCain with a 1 point lead in AZ. Kick the field goal, Barry.
