New McCain ad: Meet my opponent, the male opera singer

To cleanse the palate, one of the funniest — and most devastating — attack ads of the campaign. Glassman is an Air Force JAG and who likes to raise money for underprivileged kids in his spare time. He also sings with the Tucson Boys Choir, from which the footage here is presumably drawn. And of course he’s getting crushed by McCain in the general election, for the simple reason that Arizona, of all states, isn’t about to replace a longtime Republican incumbent with a Democrat in this year of all years. But no matter: Maverick’s a go-for-the-throat kind of guy — except when he’s running against Barack Obama, of course — so here he is lunging for the jugular with a spot that makes it almost impossible to think of Glassman going forward without giggling. Like Dave Weigel says: Brutal.
