Doctor No? Doctor No?

That's how the McCain camp plans to mischaracterize Sen. Obama's posiiton on energy. Policy aside, this is yet another reference going back multiple decades - back to 1962, specifically.

So far McCain has compared Obama to:

-- William Jennings Bryan, a politician from the late 1800s
-- Jimmy Carter, president in the late '70s
-- Dr. No, from the 1960s

Can John McCain make a cultural reference in the current century? He can't use the computer to do "a Google" to make it happen, so he's got a handicap.

A nation waits.

MORE: The lame web ad is also out of the '60s. I dunno, maybe McCain thinks sixties schtick is cutting edge.
