McCain Ad Fails To Mention Britney & Hilton Family Support For Bush & McCain

On one hand, the new John McCain ads that use both Britney Spears and Paris Hilton against Senator Barack Obama are so juvenile and silly that the McCain Campaign probably has wounded itself more than anything. But one fact that has become lost is that the baby dropping, head shaving, troubled pop princess, Britney Spears is a longtime George Bush supporter and probably supports John McCain as well. And the Hilton family are well known John McCain supporters. How wacky is it indeed when the McCain campaign actually uses some of their own goofy supporters against their political opponent.

In a great many ways, the absurd antics of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton are hardly much more intellectually deep than some of the shallow nonsense coming from the McCain Campaign recently. Both Spears and Hilton have proven they will do anything for publicity, no matter how cheap. John McCain will as well.

After Barack Obama inspired 200,000 persons in Berlin and helped to foster greater respect for the U.S., the McCain Campaign quickly arranged some really cheap photo-opt outside some small German restaurant in Columbus, Ohio just to stay in the news.

And after Spears and Hilton devised some grand plan to shave their privates and expose them in public for publicity reasons, the McCain Campaign just had to eventually follow suit and sound off some signals that they want to shave entitlements like Social Security. It only follows suit that such a silly and shallow political campaign would exploit silly and shallow public figures like Britney Spears or Paris Hilton to make their point. They're nearly intellectual soulmates.

In a great many ways, Britney Spears, a Louisiana native, expresses just the sort of shallow hypocrites that the McCain campaign is attracting like crap to flies.

Britney Spears supposedly upholds conservative Southern values including conservative morality, yet her own behavior is absolutely in contrast to all of this. Likewise, the McCain Campaign has been plagued with resignations with moral hypocrites such as Phil Gramm, a 1970's soft porn movie producer who later claimed support for the Christian Coalition of Ralph Reed, and Troy King, the Alabama Chairman of the McCain Campaign, removed after a Gay scandal broke. Other hypocrites have been jumping off the McCain Campaign like rats from some burning ship.

The Barack Obama Campaign has made honest attempts to level with the voters the truth about issues, and challenge voters to think and act as partners for change, while the McCain Campaign has hardly lost any effort to go for the cheap publicity and cheap votes.

McCain's reversal and new found support for off-shore oil drilling constantly fails to mention it would take every day of ten years for any American motorist to actually see any drop of oil from a long process of permits, exploration, drilling, refining, etc. McCain knows full well that this is pure nonsense to mislead motorists that off-shore oil driliing would soon cut their gas bills, but the McCain Campaign is desperate, running behind, and going for all the cheap moments and cheap votes this year.

The bottom line is that McCain is no reformer or agent of change. He's the same old low -road politics that we've all seen from some politicians many, many times before.

And if the McCain Campaign needs to throw some loyal George Bush and McCain supporters like Britney Spears or the Hiltons under the train to make it to the White House, then they'll go for that low road. Nothing is below the dignity of this low-road to the White House campaign.

Paul -- are you suggesting that the Republican, conservative Brittany Spears is just another southern hypocrite?

Say it isn't so!

Lee, indeed, Opps, McCain did it again, in regards to associating himself with still more hypocrites.

Maybe McCain should go all out and appoint Britney or Paris to the cabinet? Maybe baby dropping can even become a cabinet position in a McCain Administration.

Lee Ward[TypeKey Profile Page]:

Judging from the number of "dropped on their heads as babies" Republicans one encounters in the blogosphere these days, I'd guess "baby dropping" will soon become an Olympic sport if the GOP gets their way.

Too funny, Lee.

I guess baby dropping is a thankless job, so some messed up Republican pop star like Britney with more money than good sense has to do more of it to make up for the good mothers who don't.

Denise:

Who said this: "I am so overexposed, I make Paris Hilton look like a recluse."

Paris Hilton jumped into the political news on Wednesday when her image was used by the McCain campaign in an ad mocking the celebrity of presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.).

But this was not the first time Hilton was injected into political discourse.

Obama himself mentioned her during his routine before the winter Gridiron dinner in 2004, just after he was elected to the Senate

"It's like I was shot out of a cannon. I am so overexposed, I make Paris Hilton look like a recluse. "After all the attention -- People magazine, GQ, Vanity Fair, Letterman -- I figure there's nowhere to go from here but down. So tonight, I announce my retirement from the United States Senate. I had a good run."

Unfortunately , he's BACKKKKKK

anne:

It's just like John McClown to put his foot in his mouth. I am quite sure by now that he has managed to alienate an untold number of Republicans and Independents. These 2 young women are supporters of his party, and I wonder what Paris Hilton's family must think of their daughter being used in this way without her permission. Sure, they're young and have done some incredibly stupid things--but there is still hope for them.

McClown, on the other hand, keeps making these silly, shallow, and downright juvenile ads and statments about Barack Obama to deflect attention from his lack of class, knowledge, or
positive solutions to offer the electorate.
He is an elder statesman who is prostituting himself for the most powerful position in the world. For that, he has sold his dignity, his integrity, and his trustworthiness.

I have always favored Barack Obama, because he has these qualities that McClown lacks. He is by no means perfect, but he far surpasses McClown in being presidential.
