McSame As Bush

The Campaign to Defend America, a 501(c)4 that will be doing a whole lot of work against John W. McCain this cycle, has released their first ad.

Greg Sargent at TPM Election Central reports:

The Campaign to Defend America — which will be running ads on issues like Iraq, the economy, energy, and health care, from a bent that appears to be pro-Democratic — is spending more than $1,000,000 on the buy, the group tells me.

This is great.  The Campaign to Defend America is staffed by some incredibly talented Democratic operatives. I’m sure their ads will be more creative and more pointed as the campaign progresses (no need to go overboard with their first ad).

I’d hope that the independent expenditures working against McCain recognize that the best course of action is to hit him as hard as possible. This ad is a good start, but I hope it will represent the baseline for how aggressive the Campaign will be when criticizing McCain and tying him to Bush.
