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


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.

    They are questioning that he was born in Hawaii stupid! Not whether or not it’s a state. Last I checked Africa isn’t a US State.

    The Moose reminds me of Obama!

    It really makes me laugh to see folks miss quoting Sarah-it was Tina who said what the moose is saying in this Ad!

    Also, she has more direct experience to be Commander in Chief then Obama!

    Laugh all you want, come Nov. 5 all you zombies won't know what to do!

    Not only is Palin's oil handout to Alaskans "socialist" by her definition, what about McCain's proposed mortgage bailout.

    McCain wants to take MY tax money and use it to bail out the guy next door who hasn't been paying his mortgage AND his bank, who didn't screen who they were giving a loan to. To the tune of 300 billion dollars.

    You're going to tell me that isn't "spreading the wealth" or "socialism"?

    Last I checked Obama is running for president not VP. She's almost as qualified as he is! Again, and repeat after me; Obama is running for president.

    This Moose has more going for it than the one who might have shot it.

    I just love it! ... I just love the fact that the Moose will be appearing in ads’ prior to her appearance in some of these cities/towns. LOL

    Don't steal our water, McCain! Or we'll send a bear after you.

    David "Stick to the policies remember"

    The ad did stick to the policies by showing that Sarah Palin doesn't know anything about these policies which she speaks of. This woman is a whack job and this ad uses her own interests to point that out 🙂

    The Dems are obsessed with Palin!

    I love seeing the Dems go crazy over this!

    Facts are facts, Obama has the most liberal voting record, his proposals will raise taxes and spread the wealth. How can he give a tax break to 95% of US households when 40% already don't pay taxes? That does not make sense!

    Obama is not ready to be president of the US; the US needs a capable, experienced, reform minded individual to lead it. We need John McCain!

    McCain/Palin '08!!
