'All This Feels Very Roveian To Me'

Who knew one simple ad poking fun at Barack Obama would cause such fallout? And really, were you aware there was such a difference between a celebrity and a rock star?
TO HOLLYWOOD it smacked of desperation.

That's why the reaction to a new John McCain ad attempting to portray Barack Obama as a kind of mindless celebrity -- likening him to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears -- drew collective yawns and shrugs of irritation from politically active members of the entertainment industry.

"I didn't think McCain could look silly," mused Norman Lear. "But that ad diminishes him and makes him look silly."
Norman Lear. There's a reliable source considering the guy is to the left of Pol Pot.

Anyway, this ad has definitely hit home considering the squealing and kvelling over it. You know if they're whining there's an element of truth.

And let's face it, Obama is an empty-headed celebutard.

Alas, some see sinister conspiracies lurking.
"Celebrities are coming onboard because they're excited about Obama, like the rest of America," said Hollywood publicist Howard Bragman. "It's not because he's pandering to them." Bragman called the McCain ad "inauthentic."

"Anyone who knows and listens to Barack Obama doesn't think he's empty-headed," said Bragman, who has known more than his share of vacant skulls. "All this feels very Roveian to me."
It appears Bragman has joined Obama in the empty-headed twit group.
