Hillary Clinton Pulls Misleading Ad

The radio commercial I posted about yesterday created by Clinton's campaign aimed at Barack Obama was pulled by the campaign today. At lease someone is reading plasticblog. Obama's campaign has already released an ad claiming that Clinton will say anything to get elected.

UPDATE: Here's the script of the Obama ad.

Obama: "I’m Barack Obama, running for president and I approve this message."

Announcer: "It’s what’s wrong with politics today. Hillary Clinton will say anything to get elected. Now she’s making false attacks on Barack Obama.

"The Washington Post says Clinton isn’t telling the truth. Obama 'did not say that he liked the ideas of Republicans.' In fact, Obama’s led the fight to raise the minimum wage, close corporate tax loopholes and cut taxes for the middle class. But it was Hillary Clinton, in an interview with Tom Brokaw, who quote 'paid tribute' to Ronald Reagan’s economic and foreign policy. She championed NAFTA –- even though it has cost South Carolina thousands of jobs. And worst of all, it was Hillary Clinton who voted for George Bush’s war in Iraq. Hillary Clinton. She’ll say anything, and change nothing. It’s time to turn the page. Paid for by Obama for America."

UPDATE 2: Obama has now taken down his response ad...

well, that was a good move Obama. stick it to 'em, then quietly pull back.
let the monster bleed.
well Plasticblog, this calls for celebration. US politics are basically in the palm of your hand, now.
But with great power comes great responsibility.
oh, and hire someone to sharpie-up anything in your past that might put you in a soft spot... you know, they're gonna be looking for that like basset hounds, and if they find anything, it'll be like horse flies on basset hound shit.
WHOA!
