Thanks, Team McC!  100,000 donors filled Obama’s coffers just yesterday alone.

John McCain’s bitter and seemingly desperate television attack ad comparing Obama to Paris Hilton seems to have stirred up a hornet’s nest of voters.

Karl Rove’s protégé, Steve Schmidt, is responsible for day-to-day operations of the McCain campaign (per the NY Times yesterday).  Is the Rove-era over?

Just yesterday alone, over 100,000 people donated to the Obama campaign.  Over one-third of those were first time donors, according to Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe.  200,000 supporters contributed in the last week.  

Here’s Plouffe’s message to donors, distributed a few minutes ago.
