DNC trying to fire up the up base

From NBC's Mark Murray
The Democratic National Committee is up with a new one-minute TV ad featuring President Obama firing up his audience -- "Fired up, ready to go" -- at yesterday's health-care rally in Maryland.


According to Salon's Mike Madden, who first reported on this TV advertisement, the ad will air on national cable and in the DC area, as well as on 40 liberal blogs.

The ad coincides with the DNC's new "Call'em Out" campaign, which is says is intended "to set the record straight on GOP lies, scare tactics and mistruths on health insurance reform and other issues." The campaign's first target: Minnesota GOP Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
