Talking 'Moose' takes aim at McCain-Palin in new ad

CNN

Watch: In the latest MoveOn.org ad a talking moose takes aim at the McCain-Palin ticket.

(CNN)– A talking moose is the latest star of an anti-McCain-Palin ad put out by MoveOn.org Monday, taking aim at the Alaska governor’s experience and record.

“You really gotta question John McCain’s judgment pickin’ Sarah Palin as his VP,” the moose, which is mounted on a wall says.

“We know her up here. She doesn't have any national security experience,” the moose says. “She can't even explain Bush's war policy. But she supports his war. And now she's an expert because she can see Russia?”

The 30-second spot, “Moose,” will literally follow Gov. Palin across the country as she campaigns for these final weeks.

According to MoveOn.org, the ad will air in towns and cities one day in advance of Palin’s scheduled appearances in those areas, beginning Monday in Las Vegas ahead of her Tuesday campaign stop.

    Obama should stop playing moose games and hand over his real birth certificate already.

    Maybe they can buy air time on FOX cable channels. Maybe it can run during Sean "little ball of hate" Hannity's show or during one of his "Obama and Radicalism Episodes 1, 2 & 3". Both he and Rush are so pathetic and full of hate along with their sidekick Dick Morris. What evil people there are in this world.

    Just goes to show ya,, even the moose is smarter than mccain/palin
    ticket.. as a side note, the mccain family owned a few slaves back in the day per CNN a little while ago. I wonder if mccain will acknowledge
    that fact or just "re-direct"? It was kind of an interesting news bit so if
    you get a chance to see it take a look, but just remember it is
    "not" connected to his campaign rotflmao "MOOSE FOREVER"
    that's palin's motto

    Even the moose is smart enough to know that Palin doesn't have what it takes to be VP – never mind President.

    Now move on should do a funny one about Alaska seceding from the United States and the Palins as Alaska's king and queen. She's worn a crown for Alaska before.

    Anyone who can defend Palin's "experience" is "un-american" .

    If her "experience" argument is she ran a state we can say the same for bush. The point is she is just plain uniformed and unintelligent. she couldn't point out russia on a blank map but she can "see" it from her house.

    She just doesn't have the capacity for this job, point, blank,period!!!!!

    And you stupid Dems call the Republicans "full of Hate!!! I am sick of all the cruel things said by some of you. I pray that McCain/ wins. Our country will certainly be in a mess with all the terrorist crowds.

    Got to hand it to the Democrats–between Colin Powell's endorsement and MoveOn.org's talking moose, they're simultaneously courting both the thoughtful, intelligent vote and the blithering idiot vote. Is this what is meant by being the party of tolerance and inclusion? MoveOn, it's time to just move on.

    A little to childish for my taste, would have mde more sense if just any alaskan would have said it. I think more focus should be spent on her abuse of power.

    A talking moose sounds like something otu of the McCain campaign. Last thing we need to do is to act like them...

    Obama08!

  21. Obama for president

    Palin cannot even speak coherently about any subject– SHE IS UNQUALIFIED TO BECOME VP...

    She sounds completely incomprehensible when she speaks.. it's embarasing to us females!
