Karl Rove-run group Crossroads GPS came out with a wave of new television ads hitting President Obama and several Democratic candidates in target states this week, the most damning of which was against Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren.
The spot ties Warren to the Occupy Wall Street protests, quoting the Harvard professor’s own statements that she “created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do,” and she, “support[s] what they do.” It then goes on to highlight the rampant drug use, vandalism, and sometimes violence that have become the hallmark of the protest camps.

With the shooting at the Occupy Oakland camp yesterday, the message is especially timely. Warren, who is looking to defeat Republican Sen. Scott Brown, must be so proud of her intellectual brainchild.
