McCain's maturity

McCain is old. That's old news, you were all aware. But he's acting like an eight-year-old. Check out his latest ad, "Celeb":

Paris Hilton? Britney Spears? SERIOUSLY?

McCain's insinuation that coverage of Obama is frivolous and unwarranted is not only insensitive and offensive, but also incredibly childish.

He kind of redeems the ad by making statements about actual political issues, but McCain's message on Obama lately--Obama the celebrity--just reeks of immaturity. While Politico thinks this spin has some traction, and the New York Times says the opposite, let's take a second to admire the utter inanity of McCain's message.

Barack Obama is a U.S. Senator. He's running for President. He was a law professor at UChicago. He has written two very successful books. Also, HE'S RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT. To claim that covering what he says is akin to chasing an ambulance that might contain Britney Spears is idiotic.
