Robocalls Against Obama Get Disgustingly Vicious in Final Days

The robocall nobody wants to own.

Ben Smith reports that this robocall is running in Pennsylvania:

Barack Obama. His pastor preached God damn America. His aunt is living in America illegally. This illegal alien aunt is living in public housing. Barack Obama accepted illegal campaign contributions from his illegal  alien aunt. Call Barack Obama at 202-224-2854 and tell him you are against illegal  immigration. This message was paid for by and is not authorized by  any candidate or candidate committee, 866-283-3421.

"NewsModelsUSA" is not registered with the FEC, the contact email on the website bounces back, and the site -- owned by The Winston Group, a Republican consulting firm -- isn't returning calls. The National Republican Trust PAC says they have nothing to do with it.

Might as well say "paid for by not John McCain, no no no, he wouldn't talk about Wright in the final days."
