The new Obama ad hits McCain on the lobbyist central to his campaign.

The Obama campaign has not been acting sexist and I think most people see through the McCain camp's "crocodile tears." The ad touts that Palin will prove her critics wrong, but there will be tough times for her in the coming weeks as she is exposed by the very media she talked down to at the RNC.

It’s time to bring about real change to Washington and that’s the choice you’ve got in this election.”

This particular clip shows more than the ad though, going on to show McCain using the lipstick on a pig quote cracking on Hilary.
