Being a father of six, I'd call that ad another blunder. Republican leanings are most pronounced precisely among the Middle American married-with-children demographic, and I expect the MoveOn ad to produce nothing but an angry backlash -- especially considering that John McCain's own son volunteered for the Marines.

MoveOn is very good at stirring up the left-wing base, but they're tone-deaf when it comes to the rest of America. They surely didn't focus-group that ad, or they never would have released it, since it's a hanging curveball delivered straight into McCain's wheelhouse.
