Latest Obama Ad Disputes McCain and Palin as “Mavericks”

The latest Barack Obama ad attempts to discredit Republican Presidential candidate John McCain's status - mostly thrust upon him by the media - as a "Maverick" by claiming he has working for him a series of Washington insiders and votes with President George W. Bush 90 percent of the time.

Obama is now in the fight for his life as both his poll lead has slipped dramatically and the prediction markets have him at record low numbers. Bookmaker.com lowered the Democratic party's chance of taking the White House to -145 odds while the Republicans and John McCain were at near even odds from around +165 just prior to last week's Republican Convention. A $100 bet would now pay $115 for McCain as opposed to $165 just a week ago. Bookmaker.com has also imposed a $3000 betting limit (maximum bet allowed) on the upcoming Presidential election.

The ad also hopes to discredit McCain running mate Sarah Palin by claiming she was FOR the so-called "bridge to nowhere" before she went against it.

The Gravina Island Bridge, also known as the "Bridge to Nowhere", was a proposed bridge to replace the ferry that currently connects Ketchikan, Alaska, to the Ketchikan International Airport on Gravina Island. The bridge was projected to cost $398 million. Members of the Alaskan congressional delegation, particularly Rep. Don Young and Sen. Ted Stevens, were the bridge's biggest advocates in Congress, and helped push for federal funding. The project encountered fierce opposition outside of Alaska as a symbol of pork barrel spending and is labeled as one of the more prominent "bridges to nowhere".
