Rudy’s Running Against Hillary; McCain’s Running Against Ahmadenijad and Chavez


Following up on his “I’ll shoot him with your products,” pledge of yesterday, there’s a new pugnaciousness to McCain’s messages these days.

I’m noticing a McCain web ad that features a grinning Mahmoud Ahmadenijad and Hugo Chavez. Over their faces, we see the words, “Who Will Wipe The Smiles Off These Guys Faces?”

Then the image shifts to McCain. “John McCain will. Click here to elect John McCain.” The page it links to has a variation of that slogan, declaring, “John McCain will wipe the smiles off their faces.”
