A Harder Wink and a Harder Nudge.

This ad, from a 527 group called Freedom’s Defense Fund, is running in Michigan, where Obama has jumped out to a bit of a lead. (There’s another one with your boy Jeremiah Wright.)

It’s a bit of a reach. Adam Serwer:

Obama’s links to Kilpatrick are practically nonexistent, and one group intends to run ads associating Obama with Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga. Why? They belong to the same ethnic group, which is kind of like associating John McCain with KKK murderer Edgar Ray Killen because they’re both white and originally from northern Europe.

Basically. Obama and Kilpatrick were never really that tight. They just met last year were mutually suspicious of one another. Besides being high-profile black Democrats, what’s the connection?
