New McCain Ad Refers To Obama As Messianic

I find it interesting that McCain's ads have nothing to do with what he can offer America -- they're only attacks on Obama, designed to make people fear him and misrepresenting the truth. How pathetic.

From Huffington Post.
John McCain debuted another stinging attack video targeting Barack Obama Friday, this time mocking his White House foe as "The One" -- a quasi-religious figure who "anointed" himself to lead the world.

"Can you see the light?" the hard-hitting negative ad asks, following up on Republican McCain's new campaign theme that the Illinois Democrat is arrogant, transfixed by his own celebrity and not yet ready to lead.

Read more about it here and watch it below:

The Obama campaign has issued a response. Read it from Ben Smith:

Barack Obama's campaign responded sharply to a new McCain web ad depicting Obama as a parody of a biblical prophet.
"It's downright sad that on a day when we learned that 51,000 Americans lost their jobs, a candidate for the presidency is spending all of his time and the powerful platform he has on these sorts of juvenile antics," said spokesman Hari Sevugan. "Senator McCain can keep telling everyone how 'proud' he is of these political stunts which even his Republican friends and advisors have called 'childish', but Barack Obama will continue talking about his plan to jumpstart our economy by giving working families $1,000 of immediate relief."

This ad is keeping with the dumbass editorials coming out of the Weekly Standard and National Review.

I think it's funny that the conservatives can talk about Reagan as though he was the actual Messiah, but that when the liberals find their own leader who inspires that kind of hope and loyalty it somehow becomes a bad thing.
