Politics and comedy don’t traditionally mix very well… but whoever is doing marketing and advertizing for the McCain campaign is a master.
I am not one of those PUMAs that wants McCain to win, but I have to admit that the McCain campaign is going full snark ahead and it’s funny as hell!
It’s about time humor made it’s way into politics… and good humor at that. I mean, did they hire someone from Saturday Night Live or MadTV to do their ads?
First, we have the Spears/Hilton advert…
This was just the test, to see how the snark would go over. And it went over pretty well.
Next, the Republicans came out with http://www.barackbook.com. This is a fake Facebook page with working links that puts together profiles of Obama and all his friends… brilliantly snarky.
Then came the remarks from the McCain campaign in response to Obama backing out of the townhalls…
“John McCain looks forward to debating Barack Obama as often as possible, but it’s disappointing that Senator Obama has refused his offer to do joint town hall meetings. We understand it might be beneath a worldwide celebrity of Barack Obama’s magnitude to appear at town hall meetings alongside John McCain and directly answer questions from the American people, but we hope he’ll reconsider. The American people expect and deserve no less. Unfortunately, it appears that Barack Obama’s tough-guy talk on ‘duels’ this week was just more empty words. Americans are quickly coming to the conclusion that it’s better to look at what Barack Obama actually does and not listen to what he says.”
Way to make him look trite as hell!!! They just keep pounding that Paris/Brittney thing (no pun intended… DIRTY!!!!)
And now today we have the newest snark…
Obama recently said that we could save all the oil we would get from drilling in ANWR and Florida if we just kept our tires inflated properly…. Though he is right about the importance of proper tire pressure, it is a stupid statement to make and minimizes the massive energy problems we have… problems we have that are a direct result of the energy legislation he voted for I might add.
So, how does the McCain campaign go snarky? The Republicans are going to offer a free gift with a donation of $25 or more… tire pressure gauges with the words “Obama’s Energy Plan” on the side! (click here)
That is seriously friggin hilarious! They gotta have SNL writing their jokes?!?!
