2. "low info voters"
That pretty much sums it up. I saw this dumb ass ad yesterday here in Wisconsin. Jeez, it is an insult to anyone with an IQ above room temp.

7. Good One & so true, when I saw it I was thinking along those lines as well. I
don't see that particular ad getting any postive results.

13. Unfortunately, they're a sizeable plurality- particularly in key electoral states

So it behooves the Dems to fight back with their own attack ads on McCain, before the narrative takes hold.

3. That sounds like veiled homophobia to me, but I haven't seen the ad.

11. Of course, this is what we'd come to expect from GOP strategists.

"I have a cunning plan, Mr. McCain. We'll make an add calling Obama 'both ways Barack.' It's clever cause, cause they'll think he's gay, and gay people are funny. And scary. They make me clench my ass cheeks together in terror. Oh, and Mr. McCain, sir? After we're done, can I have my payment? I'm owed three turnips this week, and a pound of goat droppings."

14. I didn't even think of that until I read your post, but
I think you're right.

5. Yep. I saw it here in Philly.
Almost made me spit my coffee out, laughing. It's so childish and patronizing to voters. :thumbsdown:

16. It's a 527 ad that only mentions issue titles...
...gun control, Iraq, etc. These are clearly not issue ads, and exist solely to advocate the defeat of a candidate. Where's the fucking FEC. Oh, that's right, we don't have one.

17. I think it's a reworked anti-Kerry spot. Same snotty tone. Dare I say bitter?
