Dr. No

    That’s a good one. I watched it twice.

    That’s what I thought when i saw the ad! A little outdated…

  3. Kathryn says:

    I found it quite witty and graphically appealing.

    Saying it dates the candidate is a bit of a stretch, imo. Most people would catch the James Bond reference even if they haven’t seen the movie, and the old Bond films seem to be enjoying a resurgence.

    I thought it was pretty good too. Dr. No was released when I was 2 years old, and I am well aware of it, so I think the reference has some broad appeal. Besides, I don’t think McCain will have a whole lot of success courting the young vote, so anything he can do to lock in the older vote is strategic. This plays very well into his sweet spot. And, to consider it too old of a reference, in a campaign where we are seemingly dredging up things the candidates did in grade school, is a bit disingenuous.

  5. It’s just part of a lot of things his campaign does to show it’s petina. I’m not dragging on him, it’s just something to note.

  6. Kathryn says:

    I’m not buying the elder-appeal, but perhaps I’m in denial. I notice songs that I like are starting to turn up in commercials for things like denture fixatives.

    On the flip side, I was surprised to discover that I am younger than Sen. Obama! Talk about his “youth” is a little over done as well.

  7. Oh Kathryn, that was a hoot. Sadly, I’ve noticed the song thing, too.
