Some consider it juvenile, but I think it is funny and to the point. If you speak like Obama does about himself, you deserve to be made fun of.

Certainly one of the better political ads – no false claims – just showing the other opponent. I am surprised that McCain had it in him to do such ads. I thought he would run a Bush 41/Dole campaign and just plain lose.

“A light will shine down upon you, and you will experience an epiphany..and you will say to yourself…I have to vote for Barack!!!” (then a quick segue to Charlton Heston aka Moses)
Fabulous. That one had me mesmerized then hypnotized…into fits of laughter.

Love it, Love it! I was ready to hold my nose and vote McCain, but seeing that he has enough guts to run this ad makes me want to vote for him (just hope he doesn’t apologize for it!).

That’s the best!

Snarky, but true…

I think they should have had a clip of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey, that would be very symbolic of Barack.
But if Barack is eager to ride out the “messiah” narative, he’d best remember where it goes from there.

Honestly, I don’t find this funny at all. Mostly because I realize you have to have intelligence to understand the irony and sarcasm behind this. And unfortunately, given the fact that Obama is currently in a 10+ point lead over McCain, I don’t feel that the majority of Americans have the intelligence needed to grasp the message of this ad. I think it subconsciously validates their true feelings for Obama and the commentary at the end will be lost on them.
I remember seeing a documentary showing an ad run by Carter against Reagan back in 1980, showing a montage of Reagan’s early films of him as a gun-slinger/cowboy/soldier etc. Although the ad was supposed to be negative, it had the opposite effect, in that this was precisely what the people wanted at the time. And yes, I believe the people of the US do want a “messiah” who will magically do everything they ever dreamed for them.
So, no, I don’t find this funny at all. I think it is sad and will most likely have the same effect as the Reagan ad in the long run.

“will most likely have the same effect as the Reagan ad in the long run.”We can only hope so. After all, Reagan trounced Carter. Terentia
