The Real McCain 2: Over Half a Million Views in 24 Hours!

This is truly spectacular: within 24 hours, The Real McCain 2 has skyrocketed to over half a million views! It's the #1 most viewed video on YouTube right now, and it's getting loads of love on Digg as well. These numbers put us right up there with many cable news shows, as you can see from the ratings. The difference between us and them, however, is that we're spreading our message virally through the web. We're also spreading the truth about John McCain.

This incredible feedback clearly indicates that what the general public wants to see (and what the corporate press has failed to show) is an accurate portrayal of McCain. So continue to pass this video along to all of your family, friends, and colleagues.

We need to end the mainstream media's love affair with McCain, and we need to end it now!
