The campaigns have tussled over race cards, gender baiting and ageism through the election season. Demo-rats 4 Obama have introduced a new set of teeth marks into the competition with their independent ad about a cartoon character named Old Bat McCain. Demo-rats claim that they are not funded by the Obama campaign but their ads say something different.
In the animated cartoon, main character OB McC offers 19th century solutions to 21st century problems. The Old bat suggests that the cotton gin will help the American farmer regain his dominance over agriculture markets. The end of slavery is presented as a temporary development.
The hope for a resurgent south is encouraged as a real possibility and national audiences are told by the elderly creature of the night that Obama is just a reconstructionist fried chicken eater who will trash the decorum of Bush's BBQ pit in the former Rose Garden.
