John McCain’s campaign has been trailing in the national polls recently, and while I’m sure he’d be delighted to get whatever help he can get, I tend to think these photos of Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag in pro-McCain/Palin t-shirts may not be what he has in mind. Yes, in the past McCain has expressed fondness for Heidi, but I always assumed that was just a doddering old man saying things he didn’t really mean about things he didn’t really understand. After all, who would want someone as universally loathed as Heidi to be the poster child of your campaign? It’s like courting the endorsement of Osama Bin Laden.
That’s why with their guns and beer and vacant expressions, Spencer and Heidi’s latest publicity ploy is destined to fail. In an election season where guilt by association seems to be the name of the game, the two have completely negated all the inroads McCain has made with this Bill Ayers nonsense. Next time anyone accuses Obama of being friends with a domestic terrorist, all he has to say is “Well, John McCain likes Speidi.”

*Oh, and the answer is yes, I understand that these photos were taken simply to get a rise out of the media and bloggers, and yes, I understand that I am just feeding the monster, but hey, why not? It’s so fun!
