Presidential candidate John McCain has released a new ad comparing rival Barack Obama to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton and questioning his readiness to lead.
Yes, we're serious.
The aforementioned gossip mainstays appear in a brief montage as a narrator describes Barack Obama as "the biggest celebrity in the world."
The narrator then asks "Is he ready to lead?" and proceeds to list off a series of vague positions supposedly held by the Democratic Illinois Senator.
To us, it seems like your boilerplate Republican ad, criticizing the Democrats over taxes, foreign policy, etc. ... with random pics of Britney Spears for good measure.
In short, a vote for Obama is a vote for a girl who shaved her head, was hospitalized for after a psychotic episode, and who eschews pants at nightclubs. Nice!
