Someone over at John McCain's campaign headquarters has a hell of a funny bone.
For the second time in two weeks, a McCain press release has given us a chuckle at the expense of his GOP Senate primary opponent J.D. Hayworth, and the latest seems to wrap all of Hayworth's boneheaded comments into a nice, 1 1/2-minute Web ad under the guise of being an "unreleased" Hayworth campaign commercial.
In the ad, Hayworth discusses some of the loonier topics of the primary campaign thus far, including "Dracula-gate," "Birthers," and his opinion on man/horse nuptials. He even goes on to say how he was voted among the dumbest members of Congress.

Obviously the ad was produced by the McCain campaign, and McCain's communications director Brian Rogers says it demonstrates the absurdity of some of the things Hayworth has said along the way.
"Congressman Hayworth's public statements in recent months have run the gamut from absurd to outrageous," Rogers says. "While Congressman Hayworth seems consumed by bizarre conspiracy theories, Senator McCain is addressing the issues that matter most to Arizonans: economic recovery, job creation, and repealing the Democrats' government takeover of our healthcare system."
