Obama Campaign Compares Senator McCain To Mummy

Dead Men Walking - Meet Senator Im-ho-tep McCain

John McCain's presidential campaign on Wednesday released a nasty television ad comparing Barack Obama to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, suggesting the Democratic contender is just a vapid but widely recognized media concoction. Obama's campaign quickly responded with a commercial of its own, suggesting that McCain's persona was like that of Boris Karloff's Mummy and was little more than a Hollywood concoction. The Obama ads further added that there was no need for a Mummy like character, older than dirt, to be spreading fear throughout the world as a Presidential candidate, by threatening endless warfare and the bombing of everything in sight.

Universal pictures spokesman Karl Freund also speaking from the grave commented, Universal was neither asked, nor did it give permission, for the use of Boris Karloff's Mummy likeness in the ad, and has no further comment except to remark that McCain and the Mummy could be twins.
