Sen. Corker (R-TN) to TN GOP: Lay Off Obama's Wife

Corker's Chief of Staff:

After the Republican National Committee damaged our campaign with their infamous ‘Call Me’ ad — which we immediately denounced — we have strongly encouraged the national party and state parties to absolutely refrain from getting involved in negative personal campaigning, and we have asked the state party to remove their You Tube ad from their Web site.

Republicans will be in much better shape if we spend our time focused on issues like reducing federal spending, lowering the cost of health care and creating a coherent energy policy.

There's some potential here for an incredibly schismatic campaign on the Republican side, where each candidate runs--to some extent--against Bush and the hacks at party headquarters, McCain runs against the Republican Congress, and most members run against McCain.
