Product Description

Concerned that the real John McCain story was not being told, Robert Greenwald and his team at Brave New Films decided they HAD to do something about it, so they did some extensive research on his flip-flopping. The result is a series of short films laying bare the fallacy of the straight-talk label that has been attached to McCain like a Siamese Twin for the better part of a decade.

The results have been truly spectacular, entering record-breaking territory. Within a week of its debut on the web over 1 million people viewed The Real McCain 2. It s been the #1 most viewed video on YouTube, #1 on the viral video chart, and the #2 story on the Digg Election 2008 page. Brave New Films is now reaching an audience that most cable news shows only dream of.

This DVD compiles the shorts and adds exclusive on-camera instruction and commentary from key progressive leaders including MoveOn s Eli Pariser, Democracy For America s Jim Dean and Greenwald himself. They show the viewer how to use these short films to maximum effect.

The release of all the shorts in one value-priced DVD enables you to pass the message along to all of your family, friends, and co-workers for less than $10.

Format: DVD
All too often in the course of American political history, good and descent men have sacrificed their own honor on the altar of presidential ambition. John McCain is simply the latest to do so. "The Real McCain: Less Jobs, More Wars" is a one hour documentary DVD comprised of ten shorts enhanced with commentary that include 'John McCain vs John McCain'; 'Less Jobs, More War', 'Why Won't McCain Support the G.I. Bill?'; 'John McCain Sings Bomb Iran'; 'Big Oil Fuels the Straight Talk Express'; 'McCain's Spiritual Guide Wants American to Destroy Islam'; 'John McBush 2008'; Leaked - ABC's Stephanopoulos Interviews McCain'; 'Why Do Women Give McCain a Zero?'; and 'McCain's Youtube Problem Just became a Nightmare. It's somewhat ironic that the McCain campaign's descent into character assassination politics against his Democratic opponent Barack Obama should come from a man who himself was the smear campaign target in the Republican presidential primaries of 2008 from the team of George Bush, Dick Cheney, and Karl Rove.
