I thought the McCain campaign had lost it when it began running attack ads blaming Barack Obama for higher prices at the pump. But the latest ad suggesting Obama is so lacking in substance as to be comparable to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton is downright silly. Democratic Party strategist Donna Brazille dismisses the ad, claiming that Americans are able to separate the substantive from the superficial. I hope she's correct but history tells me that this is a standard move from the Republican Party playbook that has been quite successful in past elections.
And since celebrities have now been introduced into the campaign, how about John McCain's uncanny resemblance to Mr. Magoo? Apologies to Mr. Magoo.
