Democrats, scared that the selection of Sarah Palin might influence the elction in McCain's favor, released a picture of a woman in a bikini holding a rifle with Palin's head Photoshopped onto the body in hopes of scaring voters. Unfortunately, the scheme backfired as polls showed an immediate 20-point jump for McCain when people believed the photo was authentic.
"It really bit us in the rear," said a Democrat strategist. "We thought this would sink their campaign, but apparently John McCain now has the support of 96% of the male population. Honestly, now that I look at the picture, I'm considering voting for McCain myself. Our next challenge will be to make sure no one believes the picture is authentic. In fact, we're considering releasing another photo to counter the impact of this one. Here's a preview. What do you think?"
