Bold Republicans

Fresh off a television advertisement that FactCheck.org dubbed false, the John McCain campaign has produced a commercial that compares Sen. Barack Obama to Paris Hilton, and then says something else FactCheck calls false.

I think that ad was very brave of the Republicans, considering that their candidate married a 24-year-old blonde heiress who's had to fight an addiction, having started to date her before the end of his first marriage. Under those circumstances, I wouldn't have dared bring Paris Hilton into the political discourse. It would have just seemed too chancy.
