Morning Poll: Is John McCain's Latest Web Ad "Unbecoming of a Senator?"
Senator John McCain's latest Web ad's getting a lot of attention, and some say it went a little over the line.
The ad spoofs J.D. Hayworth's gig as an infomercial pitchman by portraying the Senate hopeful as a spokesman for an array of products that seem to mock every stupid thing Hayworth's done over the course of the campaign.
Check out the ad after the jump.
Hayworth's campaign has said the ad is over the line and his campaign spokesman, Mark Sanders, goes so far as to say the ad is "unbecoming of a senator."
