John McCain Likens Barack Obama to... Britney Spears!

by at . Comments

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.

Yeesh

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!

What are your thoughts on this John McCain ad? We'd love to hear them. And for more from the colliding worlds of celebrity gossip and political news, check out the latest on John Edwards and Rielle Hunter!

I think John is very immature and pathetic. I think this was a very low move to insult 2 people who have absolutely nothing to do with his campaign is just pathetic. I especially dislike the Britney comment because that was a very serious situation. She was having some mental issues and that should never be taken lightly.
