Powers Boothe narrates a McCain ad
Surely I am not the first to notice this, but I thought it worth pointing out that Powers Boothe is now narrating political ads for McCain. I only picked up on this because I am currently finishing the sixth season of 24 -- the pro-torture show featuring a McCain cameo.
On the sixth season of 24 , Powers Boothe plays Noah Daniels, the super-hawk Vice President. Black president Wayne Palmer proves unwilling to simply go to war with the home country of a terrorist who struck a major American city, arguing that the terrorist is not state-supported. When Palmer is incapacitated Daniels, the acting president, launches a nuclear attack against Palmer's last wishes on the unnamed mid-east country immediately on a slim pretext; Daniels also supports detention facilities for middle-easterners.
