Quote of the Day

Filed under: 2008 Election — Patterico @ 9:06 pm

It’s 3 a.m. and your children are safe and asleep. But there’s a phone in the White House and it’s ringing. Something’s happening in the world. Your vote will decide who answers that call, whether it’s someone who already knows the world’s leaders, knows the military, someone tested and ready to lead in a dangerous world.

Source: television advertisement for John McCain Hillary Clinton.

  1. I saw that one this morning. It was pretty good. Although I think if she were to be the Dem nominee a similar ad with a different ending would be put up by a 527.

    A hand reaches for the phone and another slaps it away .. “*bleeped language* Bill, I’ll get it this time” and an aggrieved southern male drawl pouts “Aw come on just this once..”

  2. For someone so supposedly tested and ready, she’s got some real incompetents running her campaign.

    That’s what happens when the main criteria for running your campaign is how good one is at cleaning out subordinates’ desks of incriminating documents when they off themselves.

  3. It is about time that Hill/Bill started fighting back against the shiny hopey sparkly changey one.

  4. The phone rang so many times, I had time to think “is someone going to answer it, already.” Then I noted that Hillary has her lipstick and pearls on at 3AM. Bet you Obama wouldn’t have stopped for his lipstick and pearls!

  5. If you’re Hillary:

    It’s three o’clock in the morning
    He’s just getting in…

    Yeah, she’s tested the thin line, and failed it.

  6. She sleeps in her pantsuit?

  7. Thank you, Hillary, for writing a McCain ad…

  8. Proof of the existence of a benevolent God would be Hillary winning the nomination and McCain force-feeding this ad to her.

  9. Knows the military? If you mean “knows” as in “hates.”

  10. knows the military, someone tested and ready to lead in a dangerous world.

    I think they meant to say, “Someone who thinks the military blows, someone testy and ready to leave in a dangerous world.”

    Bruce Wayne is always sitting around in the Batcave all dressed up and just waiting for Commissioner Gordon to call him, are you saying Hillary is less heroic than Batman?!

  12. if you elect me as your president, i will instruct my secretaries that unless america is actually under attack, no calls will be put through to me at 3 a.m.

    She’s going to have to molt to even ever get it off.

  14. How has Hillary been tested, anyway? By her husband cheating on her? I guess that will prepare her for when other countries cheat on their agreements: she can blame it on The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.

  15. Bruce Wayne is obsessed, remember? You don’t really think that Hillary is obsessed with responding to crises the way Bruce is obsessed with ridding the world of criminals?
