Charlie Crist Airs First Attack Ad Against Marco Rubio


Charlie Crist keeps free-falling in the Republican Senate primary, but he's not going down without a fight. He has a sizable war chest, and the campaign's first attack ad against Marco Rubio is set to air with a "sizable buy" of air time.

If you can't wait to see it dozens of times during the commercial break of your local news, here it is in YouTube glory. The gist is that Rubio has been a big ol' disappointment to the conservative movement with all of his lobbyin' and spendin'. Of course, polls don't show this, so Crist is trying to let everyone know that. Oh, there's also the phrase "The Republican Obama," originally meant as a compliment, but refashioned here as an insult.
