    He's just envious that he has absolutely boring as fuck. John McCain cannot win if he casted all the votes for himself. No one has shown any genuine enthusiasm in his campaign; they all come from disgruntled Hillary Clinton voters, racists who want Barack Obama out of the presidency, people who just don't want Obama as president, and the still ever favorable Bush crowd. He hasn't moved anyone. He hasn't touched anyone. He's isn't international. No one is interested in him. He doesn't get much news coverage. That doesn't make Barack Obama a "celebrity". The only people thing know about John McCain was that he was in Vietnam. The people who are voting for him are not voting for him, just voting for him getting into the way of something else.

    The only posters and artwork people make of John McCain is comparison pictures of "young" McCain and "young" Obama side by side; a picture of him at war and a picture Obama (that is actually not young at all but maybe a year or two old) dressed in traditional Muslim clothing (as if that's indictive of anything) when he visited Islamic countries. Don't people who visit say Africa, Japan, Hawaii, etc. embrace their culture and do the same? Speaking of, Barack was born in Hawaii. I've seen pictures of him with Hawaiian styled clothing; but I suppose that's irrelevant in making dull Photoshop pictures of them together to show who you should vote for.

    I think it's sad that McCain chooses to run retarded commercials rather than talk about what why he would make a better President. It's unfortunate that people who plan on voting for him don't require more from him.

    I agree....it was a dumb commercial but I don't see the implied racism that I've read articles posted on HuffPO and a few other places yesterday. Some pundits need to take a deep breath and relax.

    Oops - misread it. I was thinking of "good" presidents who were celebrities, not just presidents. Yes, he definetly fits into the celebrity president field.

    It's nice that somebody posted a FULL clip of Obama talking about the tire inflation subject, to show context, instead of a snippet.
