The new John McCain ad bugs me. I've seen it about 8 times tonight during the Olympics. (OK, twice.) It has a very uplifting (ha ha) message that goes really well with the positive Olympic spirit. Nothing like seeing fellow Americans test the limits of their mental and physical strengths and then listening to how horrible everything is in a 30 second ad.
When I heard the opening line, "Washington is broken," I actually laughed out loud. John McCain has been in Washington for the last 30 years. Isn't he part of the reason it's broken? And if it's so terrible (I'm not disagreeing with the thought - just the execution), why hasn't he done anything about it?
What a dumb commercial!
