More evidence Minnesota’s not a McCain swing state?

John McCain has just released his second “celebrity” ad, mocking Barack Obama as an empty suit. This version doesn’t feature Britney Spears or Paris Hilton — and it won’t appear in Minnesota.

The lefty political site Talking Points Memo says the McCain ad will run in Wisconsin and Iowa, but not the Gopher State. The commercial will also be seen in Michigan, Montana, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania and northern Virginia.

Here’s the McCain ad, followed by Obama’s new attack on the Arizona senator’s “original maverick” claim, plus Paris Hilton’s spot-on (really!) response to McCain’s first celebrity finger poke.

    As much as I hate Paris Hilton, I have to say this video is much better than the one that made her famous.

    Wondering which ad of the three above will be seen the most? My guess is the Paris Hilton video.

    Do we need to coin a new phrase perhaps? This can’t really be called “swiftboating.” Maybe we just call it satire, I guess. Seems to me like there are a lot more ‘response’ videos coming out this time around. And better produced, too.
