New John McCain Ad Shows John McCain SMOKING A CIGARETTE

The McCain/Palin campaign put out an official last-minute video last night — a weird montage called “The Mac Is Back,” that includes McCain SMOKING A CIGARETTE (in the ’60s, but still) and everyone riding on an airboat. It seems like this was probably created a few weeks ago in order to try to make the ticket seem “cool” and “rebellious”, and then nixed, and then thrown up last night in a “What the hell, what could it hurt?” kind of way. John McCain inhales from his coolness-boosting cigarette at :43, and don’t miss the “GitRDone” license plate (why?) at 1:05:
