McCain’s ‘Celebrity’ Attack Falls Flat

It’s funny that Republicans attack Barack Obama for being a ‘celebrity,’ yet they lionize Ronald Reagan, who was an actual Hollywood celebrity. And don’t forget John McCain’s various movie cameos.

And there’s the added irony of John McCain’s website referring to him as a “political celebrity:”

A political celebrity, McCain is considered a top contender for the nomination.

The ‘celebrity’ attack is just plain stupid. John McCain is attacking Barack Obama for being too popular and too charismatic. I mean, you know your campaign is in trouble when the only thing you can attack your opponent for is doing too good of a job.
