… good. It almost gets you excited to support the one-time possible Republican Senator-turned Democrat.

This ad certainly sets the tone for the campaign, even though it will only be aired in New Mexico for now. McCain will attempt to run on his “Americanism” and the fact that he was a POW. We’ll see how this works out. He has a penchant for overplaying a line, and we need to look back only as far as 2004 to see how far that kind of thing will get you: people still joke about John Kerry, who (did you know?) once served in Vietnam.

Quote of the Week

"To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it." -- Thomas Jefferson
