Joe The Plumber, star of the third and last the debate between John McCain and Barack Obama, is now the star of a new ad from the McCain camp.
This ad is a mess. Not only does it look like an Obama ad in the beginning, save the mug-shot of McCain that kicks it off, but it is more confused on the screen than a screen grab from Bloomberg TV.
Citing newspaper headlines, the ad used the Pittsburgh Tribune Review (McCain is still contesting Pa.), a Republican leaning newspaper, and Rubert Murdoch-owned New York Post.
The graphics that say Obama raises taxes on seniors, working families, etc. is not playing with anybody except hardcore Republicans.
Joe the plumber has been beaten to death on the airwaves since last night. This just adds to the pile….and i mean pile.
