Campaign AdWatch: Under The Penumbra

Here's John McCain's latest advertisement, "Foundation." There's nothing in the actual content of the ad that anyone will find original, relative to earlier McCain ads: American workers are awesome, the markets are FUBAR, Barack Obama will raise taxes, McCain has "taken on tough guys before," and he will solve all these problems, somehow, perhaps through SORCERY! It's less strong than yesterday's "Enough Is Enough" ad, but then, that was before the Fed bought themselves a decrepit insurance company, wasn't it?

The one surprising thing about this ad? Perplexingly, is looks as if McCain hired disgraced Atlantic photographer Jill Greenberg to do the lighting.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/15/photographer-run-amok-won_n_126566.html
