A campaign ad for Sen. John McCain's 2010 reelection bid was blocked on YouTube earlier this week, per a request from the Arizona Republican's 2016 reelection campaign.
The ad was uploaded by the campaign of McCain challenger Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-Ariz.), and it was unmodified except for the addition of Spanish subtitles. The spot shows McCain walking by the border fence and telling Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu to "complete the danged fence."
"John McCain is trying to hide his comments and agenda from the Latino community and Arizonans now that he admits he's caught in the 'race of his life,' " said D.B. Mitchell, a Kirkpatrick campaign spokesman.
Now the McCain campaign claims that the reason they blocked the ad was due to a copyright violation.
But it that were true then why is the ad back up now?
You know if I were a suspicious feller I might just think that ole John McCain is a little embarrassed by the anti-immigrant fervor he embraced in 2010, and worried that it might do his campaign serious damage in a more enlightened 2016 campaign season.
You know, if I was a suspicious feller.
