Spirit of 1776 on January 29, 2008 at 7:09 PM

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Mortis on January 29, 2008 at 7:09 PM

Funny how a few simple truths make it so very clear.

Voidseeker on January 29, 2008 at 7:10 PM

Too bad they didn’t start running this ad a few days earlier!

centralcal on January 29, 2008 at 7:11 PM

Great ad.

Roger Waters on January 29, 2008 at 7:13 PM

Ya?

oakpack on January 29, 2008 at 7:14 PM

Wow!

True.

But wow!

SimplyKimberly on January 29, 2008 at 7:15 PM

The Media narrative after McCain wins the nomination, going to be his temper, mark my words

mainmann on January 29, 2008 at 7:16 PM

Here’s a link to the trailer of McCain’s favorite movie – Machete.

jaime on January 29, 2008 at 7:16 PM

Is this from Mark Halperin? The former ABC political desk, who told his staff to spin for Kerry?

CrimsonFisted on January 29, 2008 at 7:17 PM

I like it. Hope they bought a lot of air time for it.

AZCoyote on January 29, 2008 at 7:17 PM

Yes, it’s a great ad, but probably a little late.

Bugler on January 29, 2008 at 7:17 PM

True dat. True dat.

madmonkphotog on January 29, 2008 at 7:18 PM

Slander?

MT on January 29, 2008 at 7:19 PM

That’s an awesome ad. pwn3d.

lorien1973 on January 29, 2008 at 7:19 PM

Start running it NOW!

ctmom on January 29, 2008 at 7:22 PM

Not so much slander as exaggeration.

Dusty on January 29, 2008 at 7:23 PM

Now that’s some truth in advertising.

JammieWearingFool on January 29, 2008 at 7:23 PM

McCain- lettuce pray it ends tonight.

profitsbeard on January 29, 2008 at 7:24 PM

Great ad andI approved that message.

Vigilante on January 29, 2008 at 7:27 PM

That’ll leave a mark!

SouthernGent on January 29, 2008 at 7:27 PM

Johnny boy has gotta be SCREAMING MAD about this one….time for more campaign finance reform.

omnipotent on January 29, 2008 at 7:28 PM

Wow, that’s a hard-hitter.

Guess they’re gearing this up for Super Tuesday, but it woulda helped the last couple weeks.

CP on January 29, 2008 at 7:30 PM

It is not a surprise to those of us who have been paying attention to McCain the last 8 years.

EJDolbow on January 29, 2008 at 7:34 PM

McCain, angry old man.

Obama, young, fresh, charismatic, smart, etc.

jp on January 29, 2008 at 7:34 PM

Nothing underscores the wholesale distastefulness of the front-running Republican candidates in this race than the fact that they are each calling the other a “liberal” (i.e. leftist) and they’re both right.

McCain is… well… McCain. And Romney is shaky on the Second Amendment as well as tax reform and government spending. His response to the idea of eliminating the income tax was to laugh and talk about how the government needs to take care of old people. Screw you, Mitt. The biggest drain on my finances is the Federal government. Period. Something needs to give. Mitt is part of the tax-and-spent big-government problem. He doesn’t even have the courtesy to lie to me about his intentions to reduce the size of the government and reduce the financial burden the government imposes on American citizens. He’s an unabashed authoritarian tool.

I won’t cast a vote for Obama, Clinton, McCain or Romney in the general election, but I’ll definitely prefer a Democrat in the White House to either of these “R” phonies. At least Conservatives know that Obama and Clinton are leftist big-government advocates. What’s terrifying is the idea of a Democrat-in-Republican-clothing getting into the White House and leading the Republican Party further away from the principles of limited government. Because then we’re completely screwed.

Mark Jaquith on January 29, 2008 at 7:34 PM

Shoulda started running these ads well before the Florida primary-Aaaarrgghh!

NTWR on January 29, 2008 at 7:35 PM

A blow for the 1st Amendment against one of the enemies of the Constitution! Where can I donate?

bill30097 on January 29, 2008 at 7:35 PM

Votes for Fred Thompson are currently MORE than the difference between McCain and Romney.

Placing votes for people not in the race is STUPID and may very well be the deciding factor.

Complete idiots!!!

EJDolbow on January 29, 2008 at 7:36 PM

If McCain gets the nod, I will seriously consider voting for the other side. If we are going to destroy this country in the next four years, I would rather the dems get the credit. Maybe next time the RINO’s will figure out that the worst place to be in a fight is in the middle.

Bikerken on January 29, 2008 at 7:36 PM

I’d like to see an ad with the two Juans — McCain and Hernandez. There would be footage of smirking Hernandez’ “Mexico first” and “it’s not two separate countries, it’s just one region” quotes, then video of McCain and Kennedy pushing their shamnesty bill, then McCain’s quotes from the campaign trail about how he’s “never” supported amnesty — juxtaposed against the quotes from the Tucson paper interview in which McCain said amnesty had to be part of the solution . . . .

So much material, so little time.

AZCoyote on January 29, 2008 at 7:47 PM

OUCH,oweee me thinks theirs no band-aid big enough
to heal this problem!

canopfor on January 29, 2008 at 7:56 PM

Well,the ad could of been a lot worse,
it could of morphed McCain into a pantsuit
and then into Hillary!Hehe

canopfor on January 29, 2008 at 8:02 PM

The RINO in the room….

Wind Rider on January 29, 2008 at 8:03 PM

Whip-crack.

Mark Jaquith on January 29, 2008 at 7:34 PM

Was that from the radio interview with the Paul Nut?

If anyone can cut your tax burden it’s Mitt, but go ahead and bash him if it makes you feel better.

Buy Danish on January 29, 2008 at 9:07 PM

Looks like I may not have to bother rushing home to vote in Nov since there will just be a choice between 2 Democruds.

bill30097 on January 29, 2008 at 9:17 PM

John McCain –
the future of the Republican Party.

rockhauler on January 29, 2008 at 9:18 PM

John McCain –
the future of the Republican Party.

rockhauler on January 29, 2008 at 9:18 PM

Then the Republican party has no future.

bill30097 on January 29, 2008 at 9:25 PM

Can anyone say – Manchurian Candidate?

bill30097 on January 29, 2008 at 9:26 PM

McCain = Hillary

Romney = John f’n Kerry carrying Bill Clinton’s Dictionary!

Chakra Hammer on January 29, 2008 at 9:52 PM

John McCain –
the future of the Republican Party.

rockhauler on January 29, 2008 at 9:18 PM

If Rudy pulls out, thats the ONLY option.

Chakra Hammer on January 29, 2008 at 9:56 PM

Chakra Hammer on January 29, 2008 at 9:56 PM

second..er..third look at Dole 2.0!

Tacitus on January 29, 2008 at 11:24 PM

good ad!

ConservativePartyNow on January 29, 2008 at 11:26 PM

They should have ran the ad last week in Florida. What the hell is wrong with them to wait till now.

I’ll be doing my damnest to keep this SOB out of office.

Tim Burton on January 30, 2008 at 12:14 AM

Complete idiots!!!

I’m not voting for either. The Democrats are going to win it anyways so now is the time for damage control. I’ll vote for the republican candidate for the US Senate and hope that there are enough Republican Senators left to hold off outright Socialism until the next Presidential. But I will not vote for any of the remaining candidates for president- of either party. I will not be a party to the destruction of the Republic!

Browncoatone on January 30, 2008 at 2:51 AM

Bye bye Reux-dee! McClain is next.

saved on January 30, 2008 at 6:05 AM

good ad… vdh’s post is surprising somewhat.

Is he the voice of wisdom?

(sigh) How did we get to this spot?

silverfox on January 30, 2008 at 6:10 AM

Someone should violate McCain-Feingold against McCainnedy just to elicit the tyrant’s response.

Valiant on January 30, 2008 at 7:38 AM

So where was this ad a week ago? Is anyone out there listening? We can only hope Mitt delivers a slap-down in tonights debate. Take of the gloves Mitt!

mlnicosia on January 30, 2008 at 8:49 AM

McCain = Hillary

Romney = John f’n Kerry carrying Bill Clinton’s Dictionary!

Chakra Hammer on January 29, 2008 at 9:52 PM

I disagree with your Romney assertion. But your Juan McNothing statement is spot on.

If Rudy pulls out, that’s the ONLY option.

Chakra Hammer on January 29, 2008 at 9:56 PM
Once again I disagree. If McNothing gets the nomination, for the first time in my life I will pull the democratic lever, for the POTUS only. I am not disillusioned with our local politics yet.

leanright on January 30, 2008 at 9:01 AM

Great ad – I hope it makes a difference.

jdawg on January 30, 2008 at 9:34 AM

leanright on January 30, 2008 at 9:01 AM

Just out of curiosity, why woud you do that? I mean, if you don’t want to vote for McCain, why vote for a dem? You could do as I am doing, If McCain gets the nomination, I am not voting for Prez but I am voting for the other Republicans running.

kcd on January 30, 2008 at 9:48 AM

Great ad! Will this go out before Super Tuesday?

scottjenn on January 30, 2008 at 5:54 PM

McCain appears manipulative and passive aggressive in some of his co-sponsored bills with the Dems. His temper and his passive aggressiveness will burn him in the end. The media is licking it’s chops hoping he’ll get the nomination, just so they can stir up his temper and show the world what a hot-head he is.

scottjenn on January 30, 2008 at 5:58 PM

Yes, it was from the radio interview. I don’t have any faith that Romney will reduce government spending or reduce my tax burden. The National Taxpayers Union studied his proposals and discovered he’s increase spending by $19.5 billion. He can’t cut taxes and increase spending without killing the value of the dollar, which is more or less a tax increase of its own.

I don’t criticize him to make myself feel better. I criticize him because he still thinks and talks like a liberal. He’s still talking about “looking at” outlawing certain types of guns. He’s still promoting entitlement programs (including the addition of his super-expensive health care subsidy plan). He’s not talking about doing anything about the scourge of the income tax. He’s not talking about how he’s going to get rid of pointless federal spending and departments. He’s insufficiently conservative, and I don’t think that these insufficiencies should be brushed over just because he’s more conservative than McCain.
