... because the latest snark-filled Web ad from the McCain campaign does more than portray Barack Obama as a lightweight “rockstar.”
It shows white women veritably wetting their drawers over this “dreamy” black stud.
Y’all think I’m tripping? Or playing the “race card” even? (Moi?)
The smoking gun is at 1:01. It goes by so fast, you might miss it the first time you watch... as I did. A white dude holds up an Obama button (with little hearts on it) and says: “Hot chicks dig Obama.” (Hat-tip: The Politico.)
Think about that. Hot chicks. Dig. Obama. What’s the “political” message there? To whom is it addressed?
I doubt that many white Southern males over the age of 50 hang out on YouTube. But if they did... they’d get it.
Or am I tripping?
UPDATE (08/12/08): The original “Fan Club” ad was pulled down by the McCain campaign and replaced with the one below.
Why? Because in the original one, McCain’s genius communications staff used an unauthorized clip of Mike Myers and Dana Carvey from “Wayne’s World.” Busted!
