I know we have a reputation of being the place where people go when they're under the weather, but most people don't know that Arizona is no place to be if you have allergies. In fact, I never had hay fever until I moved here. But I've also recently become allergic to something else – political ads, and the biggest irritant is those ads being run by John McCain against his (about to be) challenger, former Congressman, J.D. Hayworth.
That's right, the ads have been riunning for a month against a non-existent challenger because McCain is about to be in the fight for his political life, and I sure hope he loses. And even if I didn't feel that way before, I'd sure want his term to expire now. Since most people probably haven't heard the spots, let me try to describe what they're like – they're like having Nancy Pelosi right there in your living room!
The worst one has a woman with a low, scratchy voice, claiming that J.D. Hayworth is a big spender who voted from money to control snakes on Guam. You read that right, and the worst part is, I'm glad if he did. Because Brown Tree Snakes are a serious threat. They took over Guam and virtually wiped out birds. The only way they would be good is if they took over Arizona and wiped out John McCain.
And besides that woman, there are other ads featuring McCain himself in all his glorious false piousness telling us that he's fighting for us and that he alone is standing against the Democrat plague – except when it counted most like in Presidential elections and free speech.
Now I'm not the biggest Hayworth fan, but compared to McCain, he's positively Reaganesque, and I hope you get to hear some of the McCain ads so that you can hate John McCain properly, and not just for being a wimpy old progressive fool, you know, like Snowy!?!
