John McCain has launched a two minute mash note to Winston Churchill, Teddy Roosevelt, and himself.

With the subtlety for which the man from Arizona is known, it’s entitled “Man in the Arena,” a straight lift from Roosevelt’s salute to rule-over-the-lesser-races-and-no-fussy-backtalk. With Winnie’s greatest hits. Apparently, we’ll fight on the beaches.

Along with Churchill and Roosevelt, there’s at least a sidelong glance at another former leader. clouds-triumph-of-the-will.jpg

The ad begins with the camera floating forward through the clouds, not unlike the opening of Triumph of the Will before his plane lands.
