Obama In Terre Haute (UPDATE)

Courtesy of YouTube, we have this little snippet of Barack Obama campaigning in Terre Haute, IN. What I like about this is the simplicity of it, and the way he gets some free advertising for his message. It also shows how Obama is going to win this. Meetings with people in towns all over the country, telling it like it is. "They must think we're stupid," indeed. Of course, some liberal bloggers, by panicking over recent tracking polls, are certainly acting that way as well . . .

UPDATE: Steve Benen at The Washington Monthly on-line makes a good point. One hopes the Obama campaign refines it, and puts it out there - the Republican campaign is, indeed, premised on the idea that the American people are stupid, can't find out the facts for themselves, and will buy whatever is sold to them. It is both hard-hitting and appeals to the better angels in the American character. This is the kind of message that needs to get out there, hard, fast, and often to keep the McCain campaign off-balance.
