"President Obama is leading an extreme, left wing crusade to bankrupt America. I stand in his way every day. If I get a bruise or two knocking some sense into heads in Washington, so be it. I'll keep fighting for jobs and economic growth for Arizona as long as I'm in the Senate," McCain says in one of them.
"My lot in life has been to wage war against wrong, like today's massive spending at the worst possible time," he says in the other. A narrator calls McCain "Arizona's last line of defense" against Obama's agenda and says McCain leads the charge against "ridiculously unaffordable ideas like government-run health care." Conveniently for the McCain campaign, it appears that the only place to listen to the ads, other than Arizona radio stations, is here, on the campaign's contribution-form web page.
Damn, but that's some absurdest theater! Somehow, Obama is an extremist liberal (which is news to most of us on the left) who can only be stopped by the bruised tough-guy geriatric hero, St. Sleazy himself. While I'm sure these ads will appeal to the base, to me sounds even more delusional and senile than he did during his presidential run, and that's saying something. Watch for J.D. "the eggplant" to put out even more extreme 'tough-guy' ads in response, which could be entertaining if it weren't for the sad absurdity that one of these wackos will probably end up being senator.
