In a new television ad, John McCain — who "has voted with President Bush 100% of the time in 2008 and 95% of the time in 2007" — is now trying to distance himself from Mr. Unpopularity and re-polish his image as "the original Maverick"…
"Washington's broken. John McCain knows it," the announcer in the ad says. "We're worse off than we were four years ago.
"Only McCain has taken on big tobacco, drug companies, fought corruption in both parties. He'll reform Wall Street, battle 'Big Oil,' make America prosper again. He's the original maverick."

What McCain should be doing is brushing up on his Jedi Mind Trick skills, because this is wholly unconvincing.
