CHICAGO During a tour of Obama headquarters on Michigan Avenue earlier today, I spotted policy guy Brian Deese shooting another rebuttal spot.



This one hits back on Sen. John McCain’s “Taxman” ad:





Deese starred in the campaign’s rebuttal to McCain’s tax ad last week, a YouTube clip that’s been viewed more than 112,000 times.


Team Obama has long promised it wouldn’t let accusations or attacks stand by and rebuttals like these are part of the campaign’s massive rapid response effort.


I noted their response to the new “Obama Nation” book in my story today.
