… so I thought I should post the Obama-Ayers ad that’s been going around.

The ad is apparently the pet project of the guy who funded the Swift Boat commercials last election.  I think its a pretty potent hit piece.  Its certainly classier than the Swift Boat ads in that it doesn’t malign the service of a decorated war veteran.  My reservation is that the Ayers story has been floating around for months now, and it never sunk its claws in the way the Rev. Wright story did.  Is the relationship too tangential to bother people?

Or maybe they just don’t know about it.  That’s the premise of the ad, anyway.  Let’s hope it isn’t overreaching.
