Going Rahmbo

The gloves are off!

Continuing a theme for the day of backyard Illinois politics, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee -- which brought us the "Connecticut for Lieberman" ad -- is running a new ad in White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel's backyard that more or less drops the public option gantlet down on Rahmbo.

The ad has a limited buy, but you can be sure a lot of folks will be watching it on YouTube and it should get ample play on the cable networks tonight. HuffPo's Sam Stein, who reminds us that Emanuel didn't take kindly to this sort of stuff back in August, has more.
