The Obama campaign is issuing a response TV ad to McCain’s "Mavericks" ad released this morning. (Linked to in previous post.)

Want evidence the Obama campaign is worried about Gov. Sarah Palin? Look no further than this ad, which attacks her, too.

Here’s the script:

Obama VO:  I’m Barack Obama and I approved this message.    

ANNOUNCER:  They call themselves mavericks. Whoa. Truth is … they’re anything but. John McCain is hardly a maverick … when 7 of his top campaign advisors are Washington lobbyists. He’s no maverick when he votes with Bush 90 percent of the time. 

ANNCR: And Sarah Palin’s no maverick, either. She was for the bridge to nowhere before she was against it.   

(This shows a picture of Palin, campaigning for governor, holding up supportively a Bridge to Nowhere-supporting T-shirt.)
ANNCR: Politicians lying about their records? 

(This shows the headline: “A NAKED LIE” – The New Republic, 9/08/08)

ANNCR: You don’t call that maverick … you call it more of the same.
