  1. slinkerwink’s copy for a proposed anti-McCain ad is GREAT! (dailykos, 8/5/08) How can we be sure the Obama people see it? How can we persuade them to run with it? As someone (probably one of you) said, attacking someone’s record isn’t negative advertising. It’s just truth-telling, and Obama’s gotta do it NOW.
