Now, McCain releases his second "Obama is a Celebrity" spot this afternoon.
The second ad looks more like a Ronco commercial of the 70s complete with spinning graphics, smarmy announcer and cheesy testimonials.
Not much substance to the ad. There is a five second reference to taxes. But the rest is aimed squarely at defining Obama as a celebrity.
"We know he doesn't have much experience and isn't ready to lead, but that doesn't mean he isn't dreamy," says the announcer.
Followed by one Obama supporter saying, "What I love most about him is he has very soft eyes."
If it only offered a free "pocket fisherman" or "Mr. Microphone" at the end of the ad, it would truly be complete.
