It's Halloween: Who wants to hear a scary story?

Newest RNC ad in opposition to Barack Obama:

Picture a choppy ocean and storm clouds. Ominious voiceover says "we count on presidents to lead us. Some say this storm can't get worse, so Obama's quick rise to power and lack of experience can't hurt us. But what if it does get worse?"

Which reminds me of that scene from "The Truman Show." Poor Truman has been battered by the manufactured storm and shouts defiantly at whatever powers are out there, "Is that all you've got?"

Seriously, RNC, is that all you've got? Don't vote for their guy 'cause the world could get a lot worse? We hope to scare the bejeebus out of you so you'll be too afraid to vote for the other guy.

It's the same crap fear-mongering they've been peddling for 7 years now. And it's really a sad reflection on the state of the McCain campaign that the best message they can come up with is, "vote for us 'cause the country could slide closer to hell."

Voters: reject this message. We're stronger and better than this. We really don't have to be guided for fear. Let's be like the Verizon users in those commercials. The spooky-voiced person tries to warn the newcomer about the dead zone. But like the people in those commercials, we don't have to be afraid. Look back over your shoulders and remember the tens of thousands of people attending Obama's rallies. Turn back to the spooky narrator and say, calmly, "I've got the America network, so I'll be ok."
