As we all know, Barack Obama has been running on a platform of “change” this election.
This story (from a Fox affiliate, suprisingly enough) sheds some light where McCain’s advertising ‘gurus’ left darkness – around the “C” and the “E.”
After you read the article I linked / watched the video (focus on the 16 second mark; it’s there for just over a second), continue reading after the jump:
Now, obviously, this was not something a look-over could not have fixed – “hey, look, there’s a black guy on stage and there’s people chanting his name and there’s a bunch of letters in the background that read ‘HANG.'” Nope, no idiot could have seen that one. Not even a blogger with an English degree. Or a Fox News affiliate. The McCain’s camp responded, stating that they are “not even validating such an outrageous and preposterous claim with a comment.”
Stay classy, John McCain and the GOP. If that’s the best apology you and your camp can do for something this offensive, then what’s going to happen when you stay in Iraq, attack more countries with oil reserves (I guess we’ll call them WMD’s) and start WWIII with the remainder of the Middle Eastern countries we don’t already have troops in? They looked at us the wrong way? Smelled funny? Didn’t wear Nikes?
Oh, and for the rest of you idiots (no offense to the non-idiot readers) who call yourselves “PUMAs” and refuse to vote for Obama because you somehow think he won the Democratic primary because he ‘played the race card’ and is ‘sexist,’ please see this post and relate to the line that reads “Yes, he deserved to die, and I hope he burns in hell.” No, not seriously, of course…
…but go take some time out of your day and think about that black background that the McCain camp has been using to frame Obama in their latest series of ads. First they single out a black man (sorry, no link this time as I didn’t bookmark the story) dancing and cheering for Obama during a rally, then they make sure hot chicks dig Obama, and then they outline the background lettering to refer to lynching, then they make Obama out to be “The One,” but “is he ready to lead?”
Not only that, but “celebrities don’t have to worry about family budgets…” as seen in the above ad…seriously? Because the only way John McCain knows how many houses he owns, the Obama camp had to put out it’s own ad that pinpointed the number the 7. That’s 7 more than I own. Who’s the “we” that you’re referencing, Johnny “I was a POW” McCain?
