OBAMABUS FEEDS ON FRANKLIN RAINES!

The ad worked.

Hit him again, Johnny:

The campaign puts out a statement from former Fannie Mae chief Franklin Raines, disowning ties to Obama, after a McCain ad attacked him for the ties.

The Washington Post reported — with the kind of blind sourcing that suggests the source was Raines — that Raines had “taken calls from Barack Obama’s presidential campaign seeking his advice on mortgage and housing policy matters.”

[blah blah blah denial denial denial blah blah blah class warfare class warfare class warfare blah blah blah]

UPDATE: McCain spokesman Brian Rogers notes that Obama didn’t contradict the claim when it first appeared in the Post.

And that’s why you do ranging shots.

Video revisited below the fold.
