Is It Wrong To Be Enthusiastic Over A Politician

A recent McCain political ad, emded here from John McCain’s YouTube channel.

The ad compares Obama to Paris Hilton (I learned writing this post, that Paris Hilton has a website.) and Britney Spears and asks that just because someone has a lot of enthusiastic followers doesn’t make him ready to lead. This ad just doesn’t make sense to me. Wouldn’t you want a politician whom people are enthusiastic over, don’t we want to be excited over our political leaders?

Now the awesome thing is the response Paris Hilton did.

So many political ads seem to simply be put out without any real thought behind them. I really wish the discourse level of politics in America would be raised. The sad thing is that I see The Daily Show and Colbert Report as helping to raise the discourse level
