McCain ad paints Dems as wolfpack hunting Palin

New McCain ad paints Democrats as a wolfpack hunting Palin.

(CNN) - John McCain's campaign released a new ad Wednesday that portrays Democratic operatives as a vicious wolfpack hunting VP nominee Sarah Palin.

“The attacks on Governor Palin have been called ‘completely false’...’misleading,’” says the female announcer in the 30-second spot, which points to a report from Factcheck.org shooting down many attacks on the Alaska governor. “And they've just begun.”

Watch: The latest McCain ad does a fact check on Obama

The announcer cites a Wall Street Journal column that 30 Democratic lawyers and researchers have been “air dropped” into Alaska “dig dirt” on Palin.

That column, by pundit John Fund, cites anonymous sources in reporting that unnamed Democrats have descended on Anchorage. The Democratic National Committee and the Obama campaign have denied sending anyone to Alaska to conduct research into Palin’s past.

“As Obama drops in the polls, he'll try to destroy her,” says the announcer, as images of a wolfpack appear on screen. "Obama's politics of hope? Empty words."

The McCain campaign said the ad would be airing in “key states,” although it did not say where, or how extensive the buy would be.

  1. Sally a Proud Republican for Palin

    Palin is proud of murdering wolves from a helipcopter and pushed for it to be legal in the ONLY state now since decades.

    She started the talk of wolves.

    MCCAIN quit hiding behind the Pig's, Pit Bull or whateve animal she wants to kill or call herself next, and come out on your own! Also, send her out alone! Let her fend for herself, kind of like throwing Palin to the media wolves that she deserves. WE are sick of the one-liners from her

    Talk about these topics: WHERE IS OSAMA BIN LADEN? ECONOMY. EDUCATION. HEALTH CARE. GAS PRICES. WAR.

    QUIT with the DISTRACTIONS chicken McShame

    Clearly this woman is too fragile to handle national politics. I think this is one more kitchen she needs to stay out of.

  5. Queen Is Losing Her Sparkle

    This is not a football game. Queen Sarah and John can't do a quarterback sneak into the White House. I mean, let's face it, the Bush Administration has done everything else, but in this country we talk to the press.
