Scroll for updates…

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee decided to “help” flailing Mass. Senate candidate Martha Coakley with a hard-hitting ad attacking GOP challenger Scott Brown’s opposition to the White House’s Cover Tim Geithner’s A** Tax and other illusions of financial reform.

Except that they got so carried away with the class warfare rhetoric they Photoshopped Brown in front of the World Trade Center, which, um, was destroyed by jihadists who share the same view of American “greed” as the DSCC does.

Ben Smith at Politico has the scoop and reports that the DSCC is pulling the ad.

Please keep “helping,” DSCC!

Between the DSCC and Coakley’s tongue, can it get much worse?

Kyle Sellers quips: “Let’s give DSCC some credit-they’re getting really good at quickly removing their offensive YouTube videos.”

Indeed.

Here’s the ad via Mary Katharine Ham:

On a related note, maybe I’ll get my Reverse Midas Touch wish after all:

The White House has shown increasing alarm about the race, with Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel placing calls to top Massachusetts Democrats to assess Coakley’s chances and weigh the costs and benefits of a potential Obama visit.

Update: Dream come true…

President Obama will be heading to Massachusetts to campaign for Martha Coakley this Sunday, according to two senior sources informed of the president’s decision, a last-minute effort to give the Democrat a needed boost in the Senate race.

It’s a sign that Democrats are deeply worried about Coakley’s prospects and the party’s 60-seat majority, and believe the president can help turn out the Democratic vote in a state where he’s viewed favorably.

WH spokesman Robert Gibbs made the announcement this afternoon.

Please do for Coakley what you did for Chicago’s Olympic bid.
