There are no images of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton in this ad, but a new McCain campaign attack ad once again accuses of Barack Obama of being more celebrity than statesman.

The ad, called "Temple," mocks Obama's speech at the Democratic convention before the throngs at Invesco Field, as a female voice-over intones: "Take away the celebrity. The thrilling words. What's left? Old ideas masquerading as change."

The spot then goes on to accuse Obama of planning to raise taxes on everything from your income to your electric bill.
