The McCain camp is angry that Cindy McCain is shown in this ad that is being put out by the Florida Democratic Party:

McCain communications director Jill Hazelbaker says, “It is profoundly disappointing to see surrogates for Barack Obama attacking Cindy McCain, particularly after Obama himself claimed that ‘families are off limits’ and pledged to ‘speak out against’ attacks on spouses in this campaign. If Barack Obama expects the American people to believe he is a man of his word, he has a personal responsibility to condemn this ad.”

As if Republican state committees haven’t used Michelle Obama in their own attack ads. Remember this one from the Washington State GOP?

Or this one from the Tennessee GOP?

Pretending to show a little class, the McCain campaign distanced itself from those ads when they came out, with advisor Nicole Wallace saying, “Senator McCain has spoken out very clearly that neither spouse should be a target during this campaign.”

But McCain’s team wasn’t practicing what they were preaching. Back in February, Cindy McCain herself took a shot at Michelle Obama at a rally, saying, “I’m proud of my country, I don’t know about you, if you heard those words earlier. I am very proud of my country.” That, of course, was in reference to Michelle Obama’s comments about being “really proud of my country,” which were predictably taken out of context by Republicans.
