Excellent Video that got McCain Staffer Suspended (Vanity)
March 21, 2008 | no dems

Posted on 03/21/2008 11:39:15 AM PDT by no dems

Every American needs to see this video. John McCain's campaign temporarily suspended (not fired) a low-level campaign worker for posting this on You Tube. The kid did a great job putting it together.

Hopefully a 527 will bring him on board.

Nice job! But I’ll bet my next years salary you won’t ever see it played in the MSM.

Hopefully a 527 will bring him on board.

And McCain-Feingold will swoop in to assure that said 527 gets defanged.

He was probably suspended for releasing it prematurely.

This is winner!

Mclame shouldn’t suspend this kid, he should put him in charge of his TV ad campaigns. This video is proof that he obviously is better at it than the pukes that are putting together the krap(tm) the is foisted upon us daily.

I find it interesting that the video had “some” exposure before the campaign worker was fired, but since the firing, it (the video) has been on Breitbart news and many other news outlets. It’s almost like a brer rabbit move....”that’s a bad video, don’t look at video, I’m serious, I don’t endorse that video and to prove it I’ll fire the kid who made it.” And so a video that may have been seen by a “few” has now been seen by “many.”

McCain does not need to invite this kind of trouble, at this point in time.
Way too easy for the MSM to label this video as “racist”.

The video COULD be toned down and edited to be effective at some point in the future, but I have great confidence in the Clinton machine, that they will find a way to STEAL the Dem nomination.

Obama without the ridiculous editing is a far better orator than the other two Democrats vying against him for president.

That’s what I was thinking.

Remember that the swiftboat ad in 2004 was replayed hundreds of times more by the media than the group actually bought in ad time.

I’m not disagreeing with the message, but the video would have been a LOT better without all of the herky-jerky editing. Maybe a stutter effect once or twice, but not throughout the whole darn video. Annoying, and it draws too much attention to the editing effect, away from what the people are actually saying.

Another example of shoot from the hip by a person suffering from McCDS.

The person was only 'suspended' for a time, not fired.

This assured that the tape would get a wide play -

You never ran a campaign, I would wager.

Too many republicans these days have lost their thinking caps -

John McCain left his guts in Vietnam. He is a fool. He should be promoting this guy, not firing him.

Unable to view video.
However to your point about suspending author.
I have noticed that seems to be way this campaign is going.
Obama staffer calls Hildebeast a monster, she is fired. True or not it gets max play in media.
Hildabeast has Ferraro call Obama a wannabe, who would not be in race, except for the fact he is halfrican, she gets the boot. Lot of airtime.
This dude gets suspended and more airtime for his video.

I would love to see pol in this race tell their opponents to disprove accusation, except that there is no story in that strategy.

This is a win win for McCain. The video gets played and replayed and he stays above the fray. Remember 1 in 5 Obama supporters have said they would vote for McCain if Hillary gets the nomination.

I think it was a smart move, stay above the fray. The Democrats are doing a good job eating each other for now.

Ditto. The "Max Headroom" effect throughout the video was pointless and distracting.

The McCain campaign overreacted. This video was very tough and dramatic, but it was not racist or untrue.

I have just about come to the conclusion that McCain really doesn't want to be President, he just wants to run. Guess he is looking to getting shot down again. The man is not running a campaign but instead it is a sling along with the dems. What a rotten year, we have McCain and they have Hillary and Obama and American has no one!

The primaries are over.

It's now not about just McCain. It's about who we're going to have in the WH.

You want to hang onto your bone, rank as it's getting, instead of climbing on board to beat the Marxists, that's your choice.
