Why no clips of stirring Bush speeches?

Why don't they just throw in Edison's first recording of Mary Had A Little Lamb if they want to associate McCain with other relics of bygone eras?

Maybe some caveman paintings of men hunting with spears... Caribou were the terrorists of their day.

I was pained by the dated patriarchy and violence celebrated in the clip ... until I saw the pretty color pictures of little girls at the end. Then I was nauseated by idea that women are precious, childlike, and need to be protected by war-hardened old men.
