If I were John McCain’s political advisor, I would convince him to run on the “all white” ticket against Barack Obama. Here’s the way my ad would run:
Show an aerial view of the White House with the voice of an authoritative male talking over it as the camera pans above.
For over 200 years, this house has been white, with white people in it. Why change history? John McCain has white hair, a white face and he thinks white. That’s why you must, for the good of the White House, vote white on election day! Besides, a black man in the White House would scare people. His dark face would clash with all the white folks’ decor and tradition. Never, ever has there been a black face in the White House! Vote white! Vote John McCain for President!
Oh, you don’t think McCain will go for my ad? Just watch the ads that come out of Karl Rove’s toolbox. He’ll create some that will make my ad seem honest in comparison. Osama, I mean, Obama in his traditional Muslim dress? Obama riding on a camel? Obama spliced into the Obama Girl songs? Get my drift? My ad is tame next to the real ads that will be coming down the pipe.
