So I’m watching TV last night, awaiting the dramatic conclusion of a Simpsons rerun, when a commercial starts. The scene is in a shoddy replica of the Oval Office, with the camera focusing on the President’s desk.
Narrator: “Meltdown. Foreclosure. Pensions, savings wiped out. And now our nation considers elevating one of the least experienced people ever to run for President. Barack Obama: he hasn’t had executive experience.”
[My response: why don’t you tell us how much executive experience McCain has? But it’s no more hypocritical than a typical campaign ad. That’s not the subject of this thread.]
Narrator: “This crisis would be Obama’s first crisis in this chair.”
So the first crisis Obama faces as President will be the first crisis that Obama faces as President. Huh? It looks like a tautology to me. Does anyone have any clue what they’re thinking? Or does McCain simple lack the money to make competent campaign commercials?
