Online Video Series "Real McCain of Genius" Showcases Out-of-Touch McCain through Bud Light Parody
Truth Squad to Hit Six New Battleground States in One Month
A new campaign by the seven unions and six million members of Change to Win is challenging the anti-worker agenda championed by John McCain at the Republican National Convention.
Part of a multifaceted, multimedia effort launched in August, Change to Win is continuing the McCain Truth Squad tour, updating its new website, www.worsethanbush.org, and premiering "Real McCain of Genius," the first in a two-part online video series. The videos highlight ways John McCain is out of touch with working Americans using a parody of the Bud Light ad, "Real Men of Genius."
The Truth Squad of nine workers also continues its journey this week, launching its second leg in St. Paul, Minnesota with a response to the GOP Convention. The Squad is traveling through three states using direct action and creative events to educate union members on controversial McCain policies including his Bush inspired voting record, negligence on national flood disasters, and lack of support for America's firefighters.
"The real McCain would be a real disaster for America's workers," said Anna Burger, Chair of Change to Win. "What we saw in St. Paul was not the change Americans need, but the nomination of a candidate who has voted with George W. Bush 90 percent of the time. After seven years of failed economic policies resulting in millions of lost jobs, lost homes and lost access to health care, working families have had enough. The Change to Win Truth Squad is traveling the country so America's workers see that behind John McCain's self-proclaimed maverick style lies a Washington insider running on an agenda for a third Bush term."
