Brave New PAC and Democracy for America

Phillip Butler ad
30 sec. TV ad mid-Sept
. 2008.


[Discordant Tonal Music] Phillip Butler: Hell I'm 70 years old and I've lived through being a prisoner of war; I'm going to tell it like it is.

The prisoner of war experience is not a good prerequisite for a president of the United States.

He was well known as a very volatile guy and he would blow up and go off like a Roman candle.

John McCain is not somebody that I would like to see with his finger near the red button.

Male Announcer: Brave New PAC and Democracy for America are responsible for the content of this advertising.

Notes: Butler is identified on screen as Commander, U.S. Navy (Ret.) POW, Hanoi, 1965-1973.
