It's time for us to take over this campaign!

I just had it with the McCain Campaign and a non-responsiveness or counter-attack from the Obama side. But I believe that the silence of the Obama camp created a void that must be filled, an opportunity that must be capitalized on.
I have this idea and want to see how many people would like to join me on it. If I have enough people willing to give $10 a week and also contribute ideas, I'll start "American Progressive Alliance" 527 that would be dedicated to producing and running "mean" attack ads against John McCain and other mean-spirited Republican candidates nationwide or in certain states or areas:
* The content of the attack ads would be derived from McCain's daily-gaff lists.
*We'll not accept any ad that is based on lies; all ads must be factual since I believe that McCain gaffe machine is capable of producing at least two gaffes daily.
*We'll start with the one that nails McCain for not knowing much about the economy and drag Phil Gramm's "nation of whiners" comments in the same 30 minutes ad that would run from time to time in most swing state until November.
*We'll encourage participation of the netroot community in creating as many ads as McCain gaffes. One or two ads for every gaffe. No gaffe would go unnoticed. And reruns would be the order of the day.
*We'll not be interested in promoting Obama. His campaign does a good job at that. We just want to tear McCain down using his gaffes.
Finally, I want to tell us what we already knew - negative attacks works. They work whether you like them or not.
I'm ready to register a 527 on Monday if I have your support.
