We got an email from former Congressman J.D. Hayworth's campaign this afternoon pimping his latest Web ad titled It's Time for John McCain to Go and were instantly hit with a case of déjà vu.
The ad features a few man-on-the-street interviews of Arizonan's who can't seem to think of a single thing that McCain's done for Arizona.
Check it out below.
That may not be the first time you've seen those geriatrics at the end of the ad -- they were also featured in another of Hayworth's ads (saying exactly the same thing) that he released in March called McCain on McCain.
Check it out after the jump.
Hayworth is apparently recycling footage of old people in his ads and our biggest question is why? Just go find some new geezers to hate on "The Maverick." Is it really that hard to find two old people in Arizona who don't like John McCain?
Spend five minutes in the New Times parking lot and you're bound to run into at least 10 people who can't stand the guy.
Hayworth is trying to raise money to move the recycled footage from cyber-space to television likely via-his lead cheerleader, Rachel Alexander, the former, unofficially-official blogger of the County Attorney's Office under the Andrew Thomas regime.
Alexander (at least we're told by those in the know that it's Alexander -- she tends to keep her blogging on the DL and posts things anonymously. She is, however, the only one who "likes" the post, as you can see in the top-left corner of the page) left a post on the conservative blog Intellectual Conservative Arizona today asking readers to donate money to Hayworth to get the ad on the air.
