McCains New Pump Ad is so ridiculous, it is actually funny



This ad was released by McCain's campaign today. McCain is flat out blaming Obama for the high US gas prices, because he will not agree to start offshore drilling.

So far the ad has had 3,800 views, from 14 blog posts and over 140 comments. The majority of comments are negative, with a mixture of anger at McCain to outright laughing at him.

Like any other form of advertising, the first objective is to get people to hear the message and then keep repeating the selling points over and over again. The target market in this case is the independent voter or undecideds if there are any left in the US. 

So I guess on that point I am actually helping McCain.

Unfortunately for McCain the response so far has been more negative than positive. So maybe I'm not.

But give it a week and a big effort by staffers to post positive comments they might be able to turn that around. There are enough crazy right wingers out there to follow the ad around. 

Hey I might get some visiting here.


The ongoing numbers for the video and in reality the success or failure of the ad can be tracked at Viral Video Chart here at least while it remains in the top 100.

The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.

Surprising how some tunes are just timeless
