Uh... uh...

Well, here’s the latest McCain ad.


(Official translation here.)

There’s not much to say about the candidate’s increasingly surreal ads at this point, except that now I can hardly wait to see the next one. Will it be in Morse code? Will he bite the heads off chickens? Premiere a new string quartet? Truly, where McCain and his ad team are concerned, anything is possible.

But maybe that’s it! Assume, for the sake of argument, there is method here and not just madness. Could it be that McCain wants to hammer home the idea that Obama is leadenly conventional by turning his own campaign into a Dadaist arts festival? Dieter! Dieter! Distribute the 3-D glasses and the whipped cream! We have an election to win!
