I thought this video was hillarious. Paris Hilton responds to McCain's add that uses a picture of her to illustrate Obama's celebrity and lack of substance. McCain has been owned.

Er, excuse me but who lacks substance? McCain runs an adolescent, brain dead add comparing Obama to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton and you think Obama is lacking substance? That add is a total crock that simply makes no sense. It's targetted at non-thinking dolts. This is a presidential campaign, not some sort of childish popularity contest. To trivialize it with a baseless add of this sort is what shows a lack of substance. And as to celebrity, remember Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger? The Republicans seem to be the ones obsessed with celebrity. Since when did it become a negative to be admired and respected by a large part of the world? John McCain seems to be suffering from a huge case of adolescent envy at this point, and it isn't pretty.

Oh, and blaming Obama for high gas prices, yet another baseless attack add showing a lack of substance.

Though I'm a life long democrat, I once respected McCain. However, his performance in this campaign has erased that. It is sad to watch.

I call any post that has to do with politics "gcg bait". Wow, don't be so touchy. One party is no better than the other. We have a RINO and a Socialist...slim pickins again.

Funny video by the way.

I call any post by gcg "BigO bait". I guess we're all a little touchy.

It makes perfect sense. His celebrity is inane like that of Paris Hilton. He offers nothing than more of the same. Just as Paris Hilton offers nothing to the entertainment business. And what's more is that Obama is close to being worshipped by people with your mindset. But, the only counter you can come up with is that the ad is targeted at people that cannot think. Pretty funny if you ask me -- or sad depending on how you look at it.

If people did think about it they would see how silly it is. Like him or not, he is not a Paris Hilton or a Britney Spears. He is genuine, extremely intelligent and offers a complete change from the current approach, whereas McCain only offers more of the same. The vast majority of the population believes that the country is on the wrong track, myself included. This "attack dog" approach is classic Karl Rove and hopefully something that we will move beyond with this election.

He does seem to be very intelligent; however, I don't think he's genuine. I think you'll be disappointed about how little he really changes anything if he's elected. Sure, there may be little things, but for the most part it will be business as usual. Look at his record. Look at the history. He's just a politician. He's no different than McCain other than what side of the coin they call.

I do agree with you that most politicians are a disappointment in the end. Somehow the political system seems to chew up and spit out those that many Americans would like to see in office.

Here you and I agree. Neither McCain nor Obama are true statesmen. They are politicians. I can understand Obama's motivation - he wants to climb to the top of that ladder, break all of the "glass ceilings" and make history. McCain - I don't get? He lacks all of the fire and conviction he had four years ago, he just seems to be a sort of automaton now. I don't know why he's in it?

I would've voted for the firey, break-with-convention, do what's right at all costs McCain of 2000 and 2004, but now I couldn't even fathom doing so.
