57. Calling the ad a lie gives it too much credit. "Bullshit" is a more appropriate term.
Nevertheless Obama needs to call McCain on this. There's no need for him to get steam-out-the-ears pissed about it, but he needs to confront McCain firmly. The ideal time for this would be during a debate -- Obama should make McCain try to defend this ridiculous bullshit to his face.
