John McCain's "Danged Fence" Ad Even Has John Shadegg Laughing, and He's Freakin' Nuts

If you haven't laughed your ass off at seen Senator John McCain's latest campaign ad focusing on building "the danged fence" yet, you're missing out on comedic gold.

The ad features McCain and Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu walking along the border fence discussing McCain's new plan to secure the border.

At the end of the discussion, McCain reminds Babeu that we need to "build the danged fence," to which the sheriff responds, "Senator, you're one of us."

If you watch the cheese-tastic ad while drinking milk, expect it to come gushing out your nose.

Check it out here.

Retiring Congressman John Shadegg had a chance to watch the ad during an appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe yesterday and even he had a laugh at McCain's expense.

Given Shadegg's bat-shit-crazy past, it would have made more sense if he were sitting at a bus stop laughing at the sidewalk, but he was in studio and it was McCain's ad that gave the congressman a case of the giggles.

Check out the video after the jump.

Shadegg isn't laughing at how corny the ad is, he's laughing at what many are calling a flip-flop by McCain over his stance on border security.

If you really feel like a laugh, though, click here and watch Shadegg use a baby as a prop on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives or click here to read about his theory on the inevitable kidnapping of New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg's daughter or here for a glimpse at Shadegg's belief that Muslim terrorists are infiltrating the highest levels of the government via-interns.

If you don't laugh, you might cry -- this guy was elected eight times.
