Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Must have cost a lot of money to run them prime time.  Its hard to see how that sort of ad can build a campaign in the medium term.  Also its too early in the campaign to run them because Obama has loads of time to refute and refine by working hard on the ground and puting out substantive proposals on substantive issues - and then contrasting with the vacuous McCain capaign.

If that's the worst charge McCain can come up with - that Obama is a celebrity - then he must be close to the end of his ammunition.

It would be quite easy to paint McCain as a cranky old curmudgeon now.  Maybe steal a few scenes from grumpy old men...
