McCain: Piss off Contributors, Lose Election

It's truly pathetic watching John McCain decide to start rolling around in the mud, even before either he or Barak Obama officially is nominated, because he does it so badly.

George W. Bush's team had Karl "Turd Blossom" Rove running things. Rove was the Prince of Fucking Darkness, and his ads were evil and effective. The man will roast in hell, but he was good at what he did (in the same way that Joseph Goebbels was good at what he did).

I gather McCain has a bunch of his old golf buddies running things, given the general lack of competence so far displayed. Of all the McCain commercials I've seen, so far not a one has anything to say about John McCain. Is that because he has nothing to say?

One of the most recent is worthy of mention: Celebrity (the so-called "Britney-Paris" ad), in which flashes of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton are followed by Obama, surrounded by enthusiastic crowds. The female voice over says "He's the biggest celebrity in the world, but is he ready to lead?"

Maybe Britney and Paris are a couple of airheads, but what did they ever do to John McCain, to make them worthy of his ridicule? Because clearly the comparison being drawn is not meant to be a good one.

This latest bit of mean-spiritedness was not lost on Paris Hilton's parents, who happen to have a pile of money, some of which they'd donated to the McCain campaign. They are not amused. I'm guessing they won't be hosting any fund-raisers anytime soon.

What this really comes down to is this: what reasons are voters being given to support McCain? So far all he's done is stand around and complain. I don't know about you, but I don't think I want 4 years of listening to that.
