THE HIGH ROAD....The North Carolina Republican Party is planning to run an ad that will reference "controversial figures from Obama's past" and both John McCain and the national party say they're appalled:
On a landing strip near Inez, Ky., RNC Chairman Mike Duncan said he put in a call this morning to the chairwoman of the North Carolina Republican Party. "I left a voicemail encouraging her not to run the ad," he said....A few minutes later, McCain weighed in himself. "We asked them not to run it. I am sending them an email as we speak asking them to take it down."Wow! A voicemail and an email! These guys are really pulling out all the stops, aren't they?
