SelectPlusMcCain Ad Calls Obama a CelebrityMcCain Ad Calls Obama a CelebrityThe Associated PressJohn McCain's presidential campaign has released a television ad declaring Barack Obama the world's biggest celebrity and suggesting the Democratic contender is little more than a vapid but widely recognized media concoction. (July 31)[Notes:ANCHOR VOICE] [Notes:clip of ad]The latest ad from the John McCain camp is raising a lot of eyebrows... [Notes:OPENING LINE OF AD] [Notes:McCain campaigning]Pundits say the risk the McCain campaign is taking is acknowledging Barack Obama's fame while trying to portray it as a negative. [Notes:Obama in Lebanon, Missouri] During a campaign stop in Missouri, reporters asked Obama if he has seen the ad.SOT: Sen Barack Obama, (D) Presidential Candidate: I don't pay attention to John McCain's ads although I do notice he doesn't seem to have anything to say very positive about himself. He seems to only be talking about me." [Notes:split screen of candidates campaigning]But hours after the McCain ad was released, the Obama campaign released an ad that accuses McCain of practicing 'the politics of the past.' It was the second ad in 2 days responding to negative ads by McCain. ___ ___, The Associated Press
