    Worst ad ever? I swear to god, that's not a partisan thing. I can get off on old Reagan ads. I can even see how Karl Rove hitjobs are effective. But that ad does friggin' nothing.

    Oh wait, not nothing...

    Maybe I'd vote for him for honorary president of the American Legion.

      The main challenge we have in November is that we are asking the American people to vote against war. And in my lifetime at least, we have never done that.

        Worked for Nixon and worked for Reagan.

        They don't go for "Troops out Now" or "No Blood for Oil".

        But they also don't go for "W4r == teh awesom".

        Hard to be unbiased in this, but I'm pretty sure the ad totally sucks.

          was a fig leaf for people who didn't want to say "W4r == teh awesom" but believed it.

            the "savagery of war" and all the other blood and guts stuff in the ad though. Certain things only work in code. Like race-baiting can work, but you can't run an ad that says "the negroes are gonna rape your daughter." War is like that too. Only works at a distance. And there's no f'ing distance here.

      It sounds like McCain wrote it himself.  Droning on and on and stringing together a bunch of flowery words in no particular order.  ZZZZZZZ.
