Barack Obama's Attack Ad Misfires

Obama Slams McCain On War Injuries in New TV Ad

Yesterday, Barack Obama released a snarky TV attack ad on John McCain bashing him for not using a computer.
This was part of his latest promise to get tough with the Republicans:

Barack Obama, of course, approved of the message.

But, as Jonah Goldberg reported at The Corner, the Boston Globe wrote about John McCain’s difficulties using computer keyboards due to his war injuries:


McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain’s severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain’s encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He’s an avid fan – Ted Williams is his hero – but he can’t raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball.

Nice ad, Barack!
Thanks Joshua
