In the summer of 2008, a famous McCain ad compared Barack Obama — “the biggest celebrity in the world,” it claimed — to Britney Spears. In 2012, Mitt Romney might have more in common with Spears:  Apparently, they both installed the same car elevator. In 2016, Chris Christie will also be compared to Britney Spears, somehow.
