New McCain Ad Attacks Obama Kids

In what might be his most controversial attack ad in a campaign dominated by them, presumptive G.O.P. presidential nominee John McCain today launched a new TV spot attacking Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill)'s two children.

According to political insiders, a negative ad targeting a rival's offspring is highly unorthodox, especially when the children in question are under the age of ten.

But after the two Obama kids scored in their performance on national television last night at the Democratic convention, "we had to do something to give the American people some straight talk on those two brats," Sen. McCain said today.

In the ad, which is being broadcast in key swing states, an announcer intones, "They're the cutest children in the world - but are they ready to lead?"

The spot uses visuals to link the two Obama kids to other famously cute kids, such as the young Drew Barrymore and the Cabbage Patch dolls.

The commercial goes on to blast the Obama children for "smiling and giggling but refusing to state their position on offshore oil drilling."

While some critics questioned how well the ad would play in living rooms across America, Sen. McCain defended it, telling reporters, "It played very well in all of my living rooms."

WOW

On so many levels I hope this is not true! I have heard of some shady stuff but this would be the straw for me! I am sure someone will say oh he's just joking, or Obama kids are fair game just like he is and if they do, I know a major highway they can go play in.

You lose cool points for not recognizing the satire...

Too late, but you're going to have to treat me like I'm from Missouri and SHOW ME. I find it incredibly hard to believe that McCain would refer to Barack's kids as "brats" and that his campaign would attack his children. Even 1968again would know that a campaign like this would devestate any chance McCain has of becoming POTUS. I looked this story up and the exact same article that greyhawk pasted (isn't that a bad thing to do, pencilpusher?) is on 3 or 4 different sites. Word for word, which strikes me as a little odd.

On a side note: the display last night at the DNC was just sickening. How much more scripted could that all have been? None of that "I'm a family man" bs was needed. I did like it when his daughter, I believ the youngest, had to correct Obama on where he was. She did it tactfully by not calling him out directly, but it was obvious she was attempting to get Obama to make a correction to yet another geography gaffe.

Didn't watch any of the DNC so I wouldn't know. Why a conservative like you would is beyond me, too.

Yea. we can't all be McCain when it comes to being geography wizards. ^_^

If it hadn't been for the fact that I saw it posted on a couple of sites, like I stated in my post, then I would have blown it off. It seemed a bit if a stretch but the libs (and some of the "conservatives") on this board are known for posting some stupid sh*t that they take as fact.

The last two lines alone should have told you it was satire.
