Video: Barr Attacks

By on 6.27.08 | 8:05PM

Today the Bob Barr campaign released a video entitled "A Real Choice":

This is what would be called a "contrast" ad, produced by Martin Avila, and is obviously aimed at voters disaffected with both major parties. About half the segments target Obama, and effectively so, raising the question, Why isn't the McCain campaign putting out videos like this? It's almost 7 minutes long, much longer than a TV ad, but that's the thing about the online medium: You don't have to communicate in 30-second chunks or worry about the cost of airtime (or FCC regulations).

Deputy campaign manager Shane Cory also announced that Barr will appear this weekend on "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace.
