McCain’s Latest Ad Shortsighted

with one comment

John McCain just put out an advertisement today that may be one of the shortest sighted political attacks in recent memory.  Keep in mind that this criticism is coming from one of his biggest supporters.  In the advertisement he compares Barack Obama to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton.  What bothers me is he throws two important Republican celebrities under the bus to make an attack at Obama.  Ms. Spears and Ms. Hilton will hopefully be the grand dames of our party in 20 or 30 years when McCain himself has passed on and getting them in the same attack as one aimed at Obama is collateral damage we can’t afford.

Britney has always been a very loyal Republican.  In the 2004 campaign she famously said, “Honestly, I just think we should trust our President in every decision that he makes and we should just support that and be faithful in what happens.” Throughout the 2004 election, she made it very clear that she was for Bush. Not only does that show courage in a left leaning industry like music, it shows remarkable political clarity for a young person.  It is important we embrace Britney as a mother as she could be very valuable in getting our message out about family values and self-reliance.

I am not sure that Paris is a Republican, but with a family worth billions it is a good bet.  She made it clear in one Sister Sledge video that she clearly doesn’t support the Homosexual agenda and despite her time in the limelight remains a rolemodel to young girls.  She has never been pregnant and can certainly make abstinence education a lot more palatable for a young generation that doesn’t find that message terribly with it.  She could be a huge benefit to the Republicans not only in this campaign, but in future ones as well.

Why does John McCain feel the need to attack these women.  With so many left wing celebrities couldn’t have have compared Obama to Bruce Springsteen or Beyonce?  What about all those rappers like JZ I’m sure they’re probably Obama supporters.  There’s a saying in camping, “You don’t crap in your drinking water”.  It is true here.  Don’t get other Republicans caught up in your attacks on Obama.
