Comeback? Obama's Celebrity Ad Adopts McCain Line of Attack For good or for ill, the "celebrity" meme is here to stay in the presidential race. After McCain's campaign attacked Obama on the grounds that he's too popular for his own good, Obama's ad makers have responded pointedly. As IMDB shows, John McCain has guest-starred or lent cameos to four dozen different television programs, and not just those of the news variety: Saturday Night Live, WWF Raw, and Entertainment Tonight have featured the Arizona Republican, as have all the major late-night comedians.

FYI- that seems to be standard practice

I do not think it is shocking at all when a person tends to like their candidate's commercials more than their competitors. (FYI-you are knocking the board members, not the commercial.)

>I also never proclaimed abhorrence to all things mccain, mostly the ads Me either! But McCain's ad calls Obama a celebrity, compares him to Britney ad Paris, and then says that he wants to tax electricity (false) and that Obama will bring higher taxes and more foreign oil (possibly true, the only substantive sentence in the ad). Obama's ad points out McCain is also a "celebrity" and then points out he's running a "low road campaign" (possibly true, substantive), that he wants to give tax breaks to oil and drug companies (possibly true, substantive) and then that McCain changes his positions to get elected ((possibly true, sort of substantive, not specific). I don't care for either ad, but as I said, at least Obama's isn't completely silly.

I never claim to be. I also never proclaimed abhorrence to all things mccain, mostly the ads, then turned around and was ok with my messiah, excuse me, candidate of choice, doing the same.

Easier to pretend to be mysterious than to defend the ridiculous claims of your candidate? With actual facts?

And you are a mystery wrapped in an enimgma of complex nuance?

Good Grief. You are all so predictable.

I agree, it's still fluffy, but at least it was more substantive and not just silly.

yeah me too, stephley got it right. its too bad they had to stoop to this level... but at least they talk about tax breaks and lobbyists... you know, like, REAL political campaign ads do.

I totally agree with stephley.

I'd prefer more substantive ads, but in the case of the competing 'celebrity' ads I think the Obama campaign was far more accurate and fair in pointing out McCain's attempts to become a celebrity than McCain was in complaining about Obama's popularity.
