McCain’s New Ad
Here’s the latest John McCain ad, which has the tagline, “The American President Americans Have Been Waiting For.”
Roger L. Simon, who knows a little something about film making, pronounces it “quite well done,” which acknowledging “though of course I am not the audience.”
I’d agree on both counts but with a strong caveat that I’ve issued before on McCain’s ads: You’re wasting your time reminding us that you were a POW in Vietnam. We know. Not only is everyone who’s inclined to vote for you because of your courage and sacrifice already on board, but some of these people will think your mentioning it unseemly. Furthermore, to the extent that you benefit from your wartime heroism, others will remind us repeatedly between now and November.
