Annd in the blue corner, junior United States Senator from Illinois and presumptive 2008 Democratic Party nominee for President of the United States... BARACK OBAMA! Take a seat because Round 1 is about to begin! *ding*

McCain's Ad

Obama's Reply

In an attempt to keep this blog as politically neutral as possible, I'm going to pretend I like both candidates equally. First, let's analyze McCain's ad.

A good chunk, 25 seconds out of 30, was used to talk about Obama in a negative manner. I don't like mud slinging. Root for your own team, don't bash the opponent. Otherwise, sneaking in footage of Britney and Paris was a goofy insert and I have to applaud them for that.

Half of Obama's retort was defending himself by using several respectable news sources as claims for the "attacks" on him by McCain being untrue. Props must also be awarded for using the word "baloney". The tail end of Obama's ad is filled with positive information about himself. This ad takes a very defensive stance.

So who wins this titan-clashing duel of political persuasion? You'll just have to wait until November to find out. My prediction is that it will end in knockout.

I'm the TV Ad Guru, and I approve this message.

UPDATE: Paris Hilton's response!
