According to an AP story, no.

"I didn't see it, and I hope that I don't see it," McCain said on April 23. He said it was "described" to him.

In the same article McCain is quoted: "I'm sending them an e-mail as we speak asking them to take it down."

"I don't know why they do it. Obviously, I don't control them, but I'm making it very clear, as I have a couple of times in the past, that there's no place for that kind of campaigning, and the American people don't want it," McCain said.
