The Olympics II
Daily Kos comments on this, and it struck me the same way. During the 4 hours of the opening ceremonies, during which all the other ads were playing on the themes of world harmony, individual and team effort, good sportsmanship, and the benefits of flavored sugar water, came a McCain attack ad. It was jarring.
For comparison, here's the ad Obama will be running during the Olympics.
By the way, after McCain's race-baiting "Celebrity" ad, the Gallup daily tracking poll showed McCain bringing Obama's numbers down, and McCain's up but not so much, until they were tied at 44%-44%. But that was as good as it got for McCain, and the numbers quickly reversed direction. They now stand at Obama 47%, McCain 42%.
