MoveOn.org and the AFSMCE just released this new ad that seems to be targeted at people who don't understand that maintaining a longterm military presence in a hostile foreign country is not quite the same thing as rounding up all the nation's babies, strapping bombs to their backs and parachuting them over Baghdad…
The ad will begin airing nationally Wednesday on CNN and MSNBC, and in Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin markets. It will run for a week at a cost of $543,000. In the ad, an actress with an infant child speaks as if she were addressing McCain, the likely Republican presidential nominee.
"Hi John McCain," she says. "This is Alex. And he's my first. So far his talents include trying any new food and chasing after our dog. That, and making my heart pound every time I look at him. And so, John McCain, when you say you would stay in Iraq for 100 years, were you counting on Alex? Because if you were, you can't have him."
How about your dog? Your kitten? Your goldfish?
Come on, lady. Let's be reasonable here. What can John McCain have? You gotta be willing to meet John McCain halfway.
