One of the perks of not having TV is not having to be bombarded by campaign ads … but escape them entirely? Not with YouTube!
Here’s a new 30-second spot for McCain:
Steve Schmidt, another top McCain adviser, also said it was accurate to compare Obama to the two celebrities who, as one reporter said on the call, are often portrayed as “frivolous and irresponsible.”
“I don’t poll Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, but I know they’re international celebrities, so apples to apples,” he said. (CNN)
Apples. to. apples. Really? Obama is the same as two young, white women … one of whom is famous for being rich and spoiled, the other currently famous for bad parenting and a mental health breakdown, both with arrest records and one with a ‘prison’ record, both notorious for being empty-headed, ‘frivilous and irresponsible.’ Apples to apples. Right.
I know, I know, we’re in the throes of a heated political campaign, but am I the only one who sees something just a little bit … oh, I don’t know … disgusting, wrong, insulting, sexist, racist … ?
