Montana Headlines finds this ad "hilarious." Wrong. This is hilarious. The McCain ad is at best an acquired taste and the whole Obama as The Anointed One meme may even backfire.
When I was an assistant city editor in Texas, a friend on the copy desk was fond of saying, every time I caught an error, "David, you're a god." We were just kidding around, but funny thing. After a while, I really started to feel like I had some sort of supernatural copy-editing powers. His joke made me work harder and take my work more seriously.
The ads mocking Obama may have the same effect. At some level, voters know it's a joke. But at another level, they may really think, this guy is something special.
