DENVER As the Democratic National Convention kicks off today, Team Obama has released another ad slamming Sen. John McCain on the economy.

 

SEE RELATED:


It (surprise!) ties McCain to President Bush, and features his quotes about not understanding economics “as well as I should.”

 

Here’s “Don’t know much”:

 

 

Also, as Joe Curl told readers a few weeks ago, McCain has money to burn before he has to start abiding by the public financing general election spending limits.

 

So keeping to that, he’s up with a third ad in as many days, this one focused on the Wisconsin Clinton delegate booted from the party because she doesn’t want to back Obama as the nominee.

 

Here’s “Debra”:

 

 

Anita Dunn of the Obama campaign dismissed the ads as nothing more than a “video press release” designed to get free air time on national cable shows. On a 6:30 a.m. (!) conference call, Dunn said the McCain ads are a “stunt and a distraction.”

 

The RNC is also having fun with the disunity theme, and plans a “Happy Hour for Hillary” tonight in Denver at the Paramount Cafe. “Space is limited,” the RNC claims in a release.
