Cue the menacing forest animal b-roll.
In the new McCain-Palin "Fact Check" ad released today, images of prowling wolves illustrate the Obama campaign's alleged efforts to "dig dirt" on Governor Sarah Palin and to "destroy her."
But anyone else reminded of this Bush-Cheney ad from 2004 (below), in which wolves represented "those who are waiting to do America harm?"
*** UPDATE *** The folks at the DNC eye parallels between this "Fact Check" ad and the 2004 one, and they're up with a new web video that places the two spots side by side. To drive the point home, the voices of George W. Bush and John McCain are even paired in a duet of cookie-cutter signoff "I approve this message." Text at the conclusion of the DNC response video reads: "Same old tactics, same old policies, four more years?"
