…about the economy?!

In a conference call with reporters, the Clinton
campaign announced that it’s unveiling another 3:00 am TV ad — this one
hitting McCain on the economy.

The first one was about how much more ready she would be to
answer that call than Barack Obama. But it played to people’s fears
about…say…a terrorist attack or something on that scale.

In this one….well, here’s the script:

Announcer: It’s 3 am, and your children are safe and asleep.
But there’s a phone ringing in the White House and this time the crisis is economic. 

What?! Is this another ‘Saturday Night Live’ skit?

No, the ad’s for real, whether the scenario is remotely possible or not.

Home foreclosures mounting, markets teetering.
John McCain just said the government shouldn’t take any real action on the housing crisis, he’d let the phone keep ringing.

This is just silly. And by the way, who’s calling at 3 a.m. about the economy?!

Hillary Clinton has a plan to protect our homes, create jobs.
It’s 3 am, time for a president who’s ready.

Time for the president of the United States to get some rest, before those early morning briefings.

Hillary Clinton: I’m Hillary Clinton and I approve this message.

She needs more rest right now.
