It's Not All Hope And Ponies

It's a worst case scenario... I agree with Jonah Goldberg!

In an op-ed in today's Los Angeles Times, Goldberg takes issue with Obama's latest campaign ad. The ad, which depicts McCain as really really old and unable to work a computer, is substanceless and largely untrue, says Goldberg.

I'm with him on that one. First, it's a couple of cheap shots. Second, neither accusation speaks to McCain's ability to lead. Finally, I don't care how much success some have had with those kinds of ads, that doesn't make them good strategy.

What the hell is wrong with just running footage of McCain endorsing Bush policies, over and over again, until November? They're sitting on a gold mine there, and they're just wasting it.
