How many young white women professing adoration for Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, can you count in this anti-Obama web video that the campaign of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, was sending out yesterday?

One…two…three…four…sure are a lot of young white women in this thing….

Why do you think they put so many young white women professing their love for Obama in what is clearly an anti-Obama video? What would possibly be negative about young white women liking Sen. Obama?

When asked, the McCain campaign says they took the video from local news packages, but of course that doesn’t explain anything.

UPDATE: McCain campaign senior adviser Mark Salter writes to say: "All we are suggesting is ‘the kids think he’s dreamy. But should he be president?’"

UPDATE 2: Looks like the McCain campaign has taken the video off youtube.

UPDATE 3: The McCain camp has re-posted their video on youtube HERE with the explanation that they had to remove Wayne and Garth from the clip. "Video changed per Mike Myers’ ‘people,’" says McCain spox Brian Rogers. "Apparently we aren’t worthy."
