The RNC National Republican Trust PAC finally does it, to the claimed tune of $2.5 million.

A footnote to the main show: Notice how the bolded white words onscreen morph from HATE to GOD, as in, HATE GOD. Not that anyone doubts Obama's Christianity. Oh, wait.

Also: The ad is airing in three states--Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania--that Obama can now afford to lose.

Correction: I sloppily misread the first report I saw of this and incorrectly attributed the ad to the RNC.This is an obscure independent group.
