Campaign update: "That one" vs. "That Girl?"

MIAMI, FL -- Ever since Republican Presidential candidate John McCain referred to Barack Obama as "That One" in the second presidential debate on October 7th, some elderly voters in New York and Florida have been confusing the Democratic nominee with That Girl, the 1960s ABC situation comedy about a single girl in New York City named Ann Marie and played by actress Marlo Thomas. There are reports from throughout Florida that concerned voters have been phoning county registrars about how to include the show's title as a write-in candidate.

A spokesperson from the McCain campaign explained away the confusion as 'yet another liberal attempt to detract from the scourge of terrorists who want to take away our freedom.' On Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor, McCain explained, "When I said 'That One,' I certainly didn't mean some TV show from when I was in my 60s. I meant 'that black guy who should scare you.' Now can we please talk about something else?"
