Phil: I’ve finally caught up with the controversial ad, and having watched it just twice can easily see why it upsets McCain. Essentially it’s going after two Democratic candidates for North Carolina governor, both of whom are said to have endorsed Obama’s candidacy, by tarring with a broad brush, apparently an old practice in the Tar Heel State. Isn’t that rather ridiculous, to have no reason of more local interest to criticize the gubernatorial candidates? It certainly doesn’t suggest that there are positive reasons to support Republicans, in any case.
