McCain Desperation Watch

McCAIN DESPERATION WATCH….Is the McCain campaign losing it? In an ad today about spiraling gasoline prices, the narrator asks portentously:

“Who can you thank for rising prices at the pump?”

This is accompanied by the picture on the right and background noise of a crowd chanting “Obama! Obama!”

Are they serious? They’re going to try to convince the American public that Barack Obama is responsible for $4 gasoline? Or is this one of those pseudo-ads that never really gets aired anywhere and is released just to see if it can get some press attention from suckers like me? Regardless, this is really lame.
