Campaign AdWatch: Colombian Broadcast System

John McCain is lighting out for Latin America, because maybe they have some electoral votes or something! And he wants everyone to know that he is in favor of the Colombian Free Trade Agreement - and not just in some Mark Penn Microtrending way! So McCain cut an advertisement on the matter - thereby satisfying the needs of Sith Lord and Colombia lobbyist Charlie Black - in which he makes it clear that America "can't go back on our word on free trade promises with Mexico, Canada, Central America or anyone else," no matter how bad it gets for American workers. Also, if more jobs are created in Latin America, "more of them will be able to stay in their country." If you don't know what he is referring to by "them," please hie thee to the Wikipedia, and look at the entry for "Tom Tancredo!"

Also: Pretty flags!
