Does Vodka really have Zero Carbs?

Smirnoff is running an ad campaign right now - Zero carbs. How can this be? Seeing how alcohol is converted from sugar, my guess is it has to interact with the body in a way similar (or equal) to carbohydrates. Can anyone shed light on this for me?

Obviously vodka doesn't have fat or protein in it, so where does the caloric content come from? As someone who's toying with the idea of a low-carb diet, but is reluctant to give up alcohol completely, this is important.
