Senator whatsisname's propaganda machine aims for an admirable parsimony through the magic of dog whistling:



* on the surface, he's calling Obama a young liberal whippersnapper;
* to Dominionist Jesus freaks, he's calling him the Antichrist;
* and to racists, he's calling him uppity.

I find the combination a little incoherent, not to mention painfully smarmy.

Meanwhile, he's so gracious as to remind Americans that he's a lying racist sleazeball and a clueless senile lackwit who isn't actually aware of the existence of women or the news.

It's kind of hilarious to realize that, if some subversive AV contractor were to replace McCain's theme song and Rickroll the Republican National Convention, it would be a couple of future shock levels beyond him, where by "hilarious" I mean "ugh".

Remember, kids, there's still 38% to earn selling fuckwit futures.
