A new project of producer/director Robert Greenwald's Brave New Films production company aims to "expose" the "real McCain."

The nearly three minute long video, which is being distributed by Democracy For America, a grassroots political organization founded by DNC chairman Howard Dean, juxtaposes "conflicting" statements made by Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on a range of issues, including the war in Iraq, the Confederate flag, the religious right, and gay marriage

Regarding the Iraq War, McCain is shown saying "The success will be fairly easy" and "I believe that we can win an overwhelming victory in a very short period of time." But, moments later, McCain is shown contradicting himself, saying, "I knew it was probably gonna be long and hard and tough and those that voted for it and thought that somehow it was going to some kind of an easy task then I'm sorry they were mistaken. Maybe they didn't know what they were voting for."

The video can be watched below:
