How To Best Mock John McCain
Contrary to earlier published reports, Sarah Palin remains on the trail with John McCain. The reason is because she’s been drawing all these big crowds, and if John McCain were to campaign by himself, he wouldn’t get these kind of crowds.
Notice how these crowds have been chanting, “Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah!” instead of “McCain! McCain! McCain! McCain!?” Hell, even at the Republican National Convention, the mere mention of Palin’s name drew HUGE applause in comparison to the weak applause at the mention of McCain’s name.
I know this has to eat at John McCain. After all, isn’t this race supposed to be about him? At the rate she’s drawing the crowds, it might as well become Palin-McCain. Even her name is bigger than his on the placards.
Talk about being outshone by a woman. Here’s my ad idea here, which uses this theme to attack John McCain. Remember this ad about Barack Obama speaking at Mile High Field?
Let’s do an inverse flip, but with Sarah Palin at the podium with the chants of “Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah!”
Crowd chants: Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah!

Female Voiceover: “She may be the star, and draw crowds like a celebrity, but McCain can’t rely on gimmicks alone.”

Male Voiceover: “The truth is that John McCain wants to continue the SAME OLD Bush failedpolicies.
Failure on the economy.
Failure at education.
Failure at health care.
Failure on the environment.
Failure on the housing market.
Just more of the same. America can’t afford four more years of the same old failed policies. No more of the same old policies, and that’s why I’m voting for real change with Barack Obama.
I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message.”
