As depicted on the award-winning AMC show, people in the advertising industry in the 1960s are utterly despicable. So are McCain’s ad team. To go by their latest ad, they are willing to say and do anything to win.
Notwithstanding its mixed messages — what do celebrity starlets have to do with offshore drilling? — this ad is beyond despicable. McCain supports higher prices for coal and natural gas — assuming he is not abandoning his cap and trade system as everyone else in his campaign alredy has. And, of course, coastal drilling will do nothing to lower energy prices even in 2030.
But the media has been letting McCain just make stuff up on oil drilling. So why not on everything else, too?
One more question — exactly who is this “John McCain” guy who would approve such a message? Somebody, strictly
Rove Bush league, I’m afraid.
