Anybody But McCain

ANYBODY BUT McCAIN….I happen to think that hard-right conservatives are crazy for working themselves into such a tizzy over the possibility of John McCain as the Republican presidential candidate. But then, I think hard-right conservatives are just crazy in general. So my opinion hardly counts.

That said, I love this anti-McCain ad. It’s just so…..Republican. It attacks viciously, it smears without compunction, and the production values are first rate. It’s great. The question is, will $20 million worth of airplay (or whatever it’s getting) be enough to save Mitt Romney’s skin?
