Obama attacks himself with negative ads
Complaining that John McCain and Sarah Palin are “making it way too easy for for me to win this election,” Barack Obama has decided to go negative – against himself.
“Anyone who plays sports knows it’s never fun when the other team is completely inept,” Obama said. “My new ads will level the playing field and give the American people the nail-biting contest they deserve.”
One of the new commercials features the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s “God damn America” sermon intercut with footage of Obama smiling and nodding. Another brags about O.J. Simpson’s endorsement of Obama.
That mock news story is from Roy Rivenburg’s Fake L.A. Times.
