As some of my more loyal readers may know, I share this blog space with The Rigorist. In his former WordPress incarnation as Ecclesiastes, he made the following statements:
June 14 – “I preemptively conceded vivacious to Obama on the last thread. No doubt, Obama is a winner on every issue that matters to Democrats. Is he going to win the ‘good to his mother’ or ‘top student’ title next? Stay tuned to your favorite TV network and find out.”
June 11 – “Obama is prettier, and nicer. I asked around and I will preemptively concede that Obama is more vivacious, too.”
June 10 – “I have already conceded that Barack Obama is the prettiest candidate. Since the issue is raised before any others, I will also concede that he is the nicest. There. He’s prettier and nicer than McCain. At what point does policy or integrity become interesting to Democrats? What is after nice? Being good to his mother?”
June 4 – “I will concede the, demonstrated, most important policy and political point of the Democrats: Obama is prettier than anybody.”
So it was deja vu all over again when I saw the following John McCain anti-Obama ad nicknamed “Fan Club”:
I haven’t heard much from my blogging partner lately and this video makes me suspicious. Is the Rigorist advising the McCain campaign? Let’s hope not since, even though I almost always disagree with him, the Rigorist has much better debate skill than the McCain campaign has ever demonstrated. In fact, I’m waiting for the McCain gang to grow up and start campaigning on the issues.
P.S. Mind you, I’ve posted the old version of the ad. Someone associated with Mike Myers told McCain to get him the heck out of the video (GOOD FOR MIKE!)
