I always loved the smell of desperation in the morning.

WASHINGTON – As Sen. Hillary Clinton faces a money crunch, several of her top fund-raisers are considering using independent organizations to wage their own campaigns on her behalf.

Another Clinton fund-raiser, who didn’t want to be named because he hasn’t made a final decision, said he may pump as much as $500,000 into television, radio and newspaper ads for Mrs. Clinton.

An anonymous half million. Nice.

Some Clinton backers also worry that any new independent organization will be compared to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, the group founded in 2004 to attack Sen. John Kerry’s record in Vietnam. Other Clinton fund-raisers say that Mr. Obama campaigns against special interests and will surely point out any help that Mrs. Clinton gets from any outside political organization.

Ayup! You bet your ass they will. And so will he. Your move.

So if you start seeing a flood of negative ads in Ohio you’ll pretty much know where they’re coming from. Just a heads up. I just hope they don’t use fake smoke!
