From Fox News:
MILWAUKEE, WI — The McCain campaign is not putting a new hard-hitting 90-second web ad slamming Obama for his relationship with former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers up on TV yet but that probably doesn’t make a difference. The video is sure to be the political topic du jour on Thursday and is already heating up the morning shows.
The spot introduces Ayers’ past as a member of the Weather Underground and his interactions with Obama but says the bigger issue is the Democratic nominee’s candor.
“We know Bill Ayers ran the “violent left wing activist group” called Weather Underground. We know Ayers’ wife was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list. We know they bombed the Capitol. The Pentagon. A judge’s home. We know Ayers said, ‘I don’t regret setting bombs. …. I feel we didn’t do enough,’” a narrator intones. “But Obama’s friendship with terrorist Ayers isn’t the issue. The issue is Barack Obama’s judgment and candor. When Obama just says, ‘This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood.’ Americans say, ‘Where’s the truth, Barack?’ Barack Obama. Too risky for America.”
McCain campaign adviser Nicolle Wallace appeared on a number of morning shows today to argue that Obama’s lack of openness on Ayers raises questions about his veracity on other policy issues, acknowledging that Americans “don’t care about a washed-up terrorist.”
“The point of this ad is that Barack Obama, when asked about his association with Mr. Ayers, was less then truthful. He called him a guy in his neighborhood. Now the truth is he is somebody who Barack Obama launched his political career with at a coffee in his living room,” Wallace said on Fox and Friends this morning. “The point here is if you don’t tell the truth about your associations, how can you be trusted to tell the truth to the American people about your plan for raising taxes, about your plans for ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, about your plans for health insurance? How can we trust you if you don’t tell a simple truth about who the guy in your neighborhood really is?”
She added, “I think John McCain is someone who always tells the truth and lets the chips fall where they may. Barack Obama always polishes the truth puts the best spin on the facts and hopes that it will serve his political ambitions.”

Candidate for the 11th Congressional District

Many of you know that part of my post senate career has been focused on becoming the next Cecil B. DeMille. You also know how difficult it is for someone of my political persuasion to find both the financial and creative resources you need to produce a successful film.
Well I found a production team in Hollywood that shares our values and has the courage to make movies that folks like us will enjoy. They have teamed up with the creative force behind 'Airplane' and 'The Naked Gun' to produce a slapstick comedy that opens this weekend, starting Friday, October 3rd, 2008,
The movie is writer director David Zucker's 'An American Carol.'
It's like 'A Christmas Carol,' but instead of Scrooge saying Bah Humbug to Christmas, it's Michael Moore who wants to abolish the 4th of July. George Washington, General Patton and JFK come back as the three ghosts to slap some sense into Michael. Literally.
So if you love your country, and think all Hollywood does is hate America, you'll spit up milk through your nose laughing when you see America's critics so roundly mocked. I saw it, and I can tell you truthfully it not only has lots of laughs, but is courageous in its unabashed conservative viewpoint on some of the most controversial issues of the day.
Here's why you should go see it this weekend -- don't wait.
A movie's financial success is usually judged by the box office opening weekend. So go this weekend!
Going Friday, opening night, is even better. Word-of-mouth and a great one-day box-office then gets others to see it the next two days.
If everyone right of center, or everyone sick of political correctness, or everyone who'd just like to see the other side of free speech presented every once in a while, actually goes to see it -- we'll get more movies like this. Like the one I am working on!!!
Remember if you don't go and support this break-the-mold kind of film, I don't want to hear complaints about the lack of conservative content from Hollywood. But don't go see it out of guilt -- go see it because you will genuinely laugh -- and after this week we all could use one, right?
Please forward this to all your like-minded email friends, and ask them to forward it on too.
PS Warning you may find some scenes offensive, crude, insensitive and even downright stupid – that's because it was intended to be so!

Constituents expect a plan
JIM LEHRER: Congressman Kanjorski, you're a Democrat. You voted for it. And why? What was it -- what did you see in it that Congressman Scott, your Democratic colleague, did not see?
REP. PAUL KANJORSKI (D), Pennsylvania: Well, of course, I'm on the committee of jurisdiction, so I've been watching...
JIM LEHRER: The Financial Services Committee.
REP. PAUL KANJORSKI: That's right. I've been watching this disaster, if you will, unfold for probably two years now, and particularly since last August -- not this immediate past August, but the August before that, when the subprime mortgage problem was created.
And then we saw the deterioration that occurred in October when the auction market started to fail. And then we saw the infection spread throughout the financial system.
Until now, when Secretary Paulson came up to the Hill 11 days ago and said we are now at a disaster stage, I recognized he was right.
