Ania Egland answers MoveOn

You may have seen the latest ad from the far-left group MoveOn.org, which spent over $500,000 broadcasting it. The ad uses a young mother holding her infant son to launch a cretinous political attack on Senator McCain. You can watch MoveOn’s thirty-second ad here. The mother says:

“Hi, John McCain; this is Alex. He’s my first. So far, his talents include trying any new food and chasing after our dog — that, and making my heart pound every time I look at him. So, John McCain, when you said you would stay in Iraq for 100 years, were you counting on Alex? Because, if you were, you can’t have him.”

Ania Egland is the wife of our old friend Major E. (Eric Egland), the hero of “The straight story.” Mrs. Egland responds to MoveOn’s ad in this 30-second video:

“Hello Senator McCain, these are my precious boys Noah and Daniel. Their daddy served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and I grew up under communism. So, when you say we have to protect freedom in Iraq, I understand. And, someday, I would be proud if they volunteered to serve this great country. Senator, thank you for your leadership.”

Advantage: Mrs. Egland.
