OK, this is just stupid.
Hillary Clinton is recycling her “3 a.m. phone call” ad — you remember that one:
Apparently she thinks it’s just the cat’s pajamas, never mind that the most entertaining tidbit is that the little girl in the clip has grown up and is endorsing Barack Obama:
Well, getting slapped down like that apparently didn’t take. Hillary’s back, and now it’s 3 a.m. — time to attack John McCain over the economy!
This is where it is obvious why John McCain has his media advisors who aren’t me.
I would have come back with her ad, but after she answered the phone, I would have had the voice on the other end saying “Madame President, we found the First Husband. He was at a sorority party, and the Girls Gone Wild film crew was here. I think we managed to confiscate all the video again.”
Instead, McCain’s team took a higher road — and did it in about SIX HOURS:
I think I like it partly because it’s saying the same thing I’ve been saying: if the economy’s in trouble, the very LAST thing we should do is take even more money from people and dump it into the least efficient, most wasteful, and downright dumbest portion — the federal government.
At a time like that, the thing to do is put MORE money in the hands of the people. Cut taxes — such as the tax on gasoline, while gas prices are scraping record levels. Taxes on investments, when we need more money going into companies that want to hire more employees. Taxes on luxury goods — because millionaires buy them, not MAKE them. (Remember back in the 90’s, when we started taxing the shit out of yachts? Millionaires started buying and registering their toys overseas, and thousands of non-millionaire boat builders were thrown out of work. Yup, that worked out just fine.
Now, can we PLEASE find a new theme for a commercial besides phones ringing at 3 a.m? I need the sleep…
