Gloves to come off?

The WaPo is reporting that the McCain campaign is about to unleash a series of new negative ads against Captain Bullshit that will call his vaunted judgment into question, including stuff that will tie him to Tony Rezko and William Ayres. If the article is to believed, the ads will not, unfortunately, mention Jeremiah Wright.

The usual caveats about this kind of strategy are expressed:

Being so aggressive has risks for McCain if it angers swing voters, who often say they are looking for candidates who offer a positive message about what they will do
You know, I've been drinking and smoking (and living up to my image) all night, but I'm pretty sure this kind of thing surfaces every year, where pundits talk about how undecided voters hate negative campaigning but it works anyway, and I'm too tired to look it up, but let's go for it:

-Barack Obama has ties to unrepentant domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers.

-Barack Obama got a sweetheart deal on his property through ties with a convicted felon.  Namely, Tony Rezko.  Though I'm not sure how that  helps Michelle Obama's children.

-Barack Obama worked for ACORN, a group that is neck-deep in the current financial crisis and is involved in voter fraud.

-Barack Obama was a member of a church whose pastor preached hatred of America and racist dogma for twenty years, was married there, and had his kids baptised there, but claims he never heard any of the hatred in spite of the fact that he titled one of his books The Audacity of Hope after one of his Pastor's anti-white-people, anti-American sermons.

Do you know an undecided voter? Maybe someone who's been suckered by the message of Hopenchange? Please, put them some knowledge.  Note that the Hope, Change, and Judgment To Lead is little more than a slogan.
