John McCain: Buzzkill

Probable Conversation between John McCain and Political Adviser:
John McCain: Hey, I have a great idea for an advertising strategy.
Political Adviser: Great, let's hear it.
JM: It's huge.
PA: I like huge.
JM: It involves 6 million dollars.
PA: I like the way you think.
JM: Okay, we take those 6 million dollars.
PA: Yeah.
JM: We put all that money into Olympics ads.
PA: Yes, yes, I'm liking this. Go on.
JM: The world is focused on Patriotism and celebrity, and we show Obama as a celebrity, not a patriot.
PA: I like this, I think this could work, maybe get a few Olympians to throw their support behind you, maybe call you the gold medal winner, maybe...
JM: Yeah, yeah, or instead, we could get Britney Spears and Paris Hilton and compare him to them.
JM: What?
PA: You want to make an ad that compares Barack Obama to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears?
JM: Yeah!
PA: You don't want to highlight the Olympics, or patriotism, or anything like that.
JM: Nope, Paris and Britney.
PA: You want to interrupt the Olympics to compare Barack Obama to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears.
JM: Yeah! What do you think?
JM: So go for it, then?
