Don't trust John McCain to fix the economy? Well, it's worse than you think, because the person he chose to help him to do it is Sarah Palin.

That's the message of Barack Obama's latest ad, titled "His Choice." It recycles some self-deprecating comments McCain made about his knowledge of economic issues, as well as an instance in which he said he might need to turn to his vice president for help in that area. The ad then shows Sarah Palin giving her trademark wink. Watch it below.
