Obama and John Kerry

Jeremy Jacobs has a piece which includes John Kerry’s reaction to John McCain’s recent celebrity ad.

“Sen. McCain’s new ad is straight out of the Rove playbook,” Kerry tells PolitickerMA.com. “Sen. McCain’s campaign has decided that they can’t win on the issues, so instead they’re going to try to destroy their opponent’s character.”

Jacobs also quotes me. ” ‘This is very analogous to the windsurfing ad in 2004,” said Seth Gitell, a political analyst and author of Gitell.com. ‘In both cases you have the Republican exploiting the perceived weakness Democrats have in Middle America with blue collar voters. They reinforce the idea that Democratic leaders are elites and not people that ordinary people can relate to.’ ”
