An Obama Link to Palin Smear Ad?

The Nutroot corner of the Blogosphere has been abuzzing recently because of a YouTube attack ad against Sarah Palin.  The “facts” presented in the video are demonstrably false — but that’s not really the point.

What is the point is that the group who posted the video appears to claim to be just another “concerned citizen” with no agenda.  But fellow members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy over at the Jawa Report have done extensive research showing that, not only is this ad created and run by a professional PR firm, but that this firm has ties to various members of the Democrat party, ties to liberal fundraising sources like ACTBLUE, and to Barack Obama. 

Jawa also calls into question whether a group with so much professional work under their belts would do what this company appears to have done without being paid — and if they were paid, whether such an arrangement goes against current FEC standards.

Read the entire report.  Make up your mind.  But something smells, and it ain’t halibut.
