The RNC comes out with a second attack ad that starts by mocking Obama for addressing a large group - this time at Mile High stadium (the first mocked Berlin).
It runs in 12 states.
But what's more interesting is the weak choice of "liberal boogeymen" used in the ad. The two usuals, Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy, are unavailable for obvious reasons. So who's used to symbolize Obama's "liberal allies?"
Byron Dorgan! Be afraid!
I'm sure his family is flattered, but they're probably the only ones outside Washington who recognize him (apologies, Senator).
And don't mess with Pat Leahy. He's in Batman.
Update [2008-9-5 19:10:13 by Josh Orton]: Perhaps I'm reading too much into this, but wouldn't the obvious target here be Pelosi? And if so, why wouldn't they use her? (That's a leading question...)
