64. Its happening slowly. Obama is getting hit on "unfit" and "arrogant" by McCain
and the Obama campaign's responses are the weakest crap I've heard. Axelrod called into MSNBC to "show his outrage" and it sounded like he was nervously laughing. I had to turn it off.

This is the first ad that really viciously attacks Obama, and the responses are weak-ass pathetic, even weaker than on the previous ads. Dissappointing to say the least.
