Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Political Chutzpah

McCain’s new ad:

“Life in the spotlight must be grand, but for the rest of us times are tough,” says the announcer, as flashbulbs pop around Obama, crowds cheer, and magazine covers bearing his portrait flash on-screen.

Put out by a man whose net worth is more than $20 million and who owns 8 homes, which is about 20 times that of the opponent he is attacking. Gee, times are sure tough for McCain. Again, I’m not supporting Obama in this campaign. But the attacks McCain is making are just so stunningly stupid that I can’t help but comment.
