McCain Wins Debate

Another epic failure

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/the...ns_debate.html

Quote:
Although the fate of tonight's presidential debate in Mississippi remains very much up in the air, John McCain has apparently already won it -- if you believe an Internet ad an astute reader spotted next to this piece in the online edition of the Wall Street Journal this morning.

"McCain Wins Debate!" declares the ad which features a headshot of a smiling McCain with an American flag background. Another ad spotted by our eagle-eyed observer featured a quote from McCain campaign manager Rick Davis declaring: "McCain won the debate-- hands down."

Do you sincerely believe that McCain paid for that ad? The ignorance of the average American voter amazes me. Get a clue man.

a) I am not an average American voter
b) YES, THIS IS PAID BY McCain CAMPAIGN
c) you need to learn how internet advertising works

I am pretty sure the ad was not supposed to go live today. But these ads created days/weeks/months in advance and given to advertisement agencies that pay for spots on different websites. They have full control over how many times, where, when and depending on what keyword those ads appear. Someone may have played a joke and enabled them early

Ha, clearly you are an expert in internet advertising.

I fully support arguing/debating on the side of the candidate you believe in. However, citing articles like this one completely eliminates any and all credibility from any statement that you make. Do yourself and the other members here a favor and refrain from broadcasting false ads.

You are correct. That ad was sponsored by the McCain campaign.

do yourself and others a favor and refrain from making conclusions that only fit your agenda. this is an internet forum and last time i checked i was allowed to post whatever the hell my heart desires, as long as it fits the forum guidelines.

if you are not happy with what i posted, either find yourself another forum to cry on, report me to moderators or just go on with your day without dictating what i am and what i am not allowed to do here.

thanks. and i approve this message.

absolutely pathetic. Rick Davis = Karl Rove v2.0.

*Queue Republican blowhards to state how necessary these gimmicks are and how we should be grateful.

When Mccain smiles it gives me the creeps. Just like Dubyas stupid grin.

Ad was probably partially paid for by Murdoch Street Journal.

I actually thought McCain did very well in the debate. His steady, composed responses really demonstrated a critical grasp of the subject manner. And the delivery, in that unwavering statesman like tone, wow.

I think the best line of the night when when he turned towards Obama, twisted his cap off to the side ever so slightly, and proclaimed "what the hell is a community organizer anyways?". Knockout!

What I heard on CNN was that the McCain campaign paid for that ad, but it was a mistake that it appeared when it did. They didn't go into more detail, but you can be sure it wasn't intended to be displayed until the debate was over.

I didn't see that either. Probably because McCain wasn't wearing a hat. This guy is making things up.
