That's what Jason Zengerle is saying over at TNR.

He thinks the Republicans put the ad up to beat up on Obama in the NC Democratic primary so the GOP can face off against Hillary in November. (Got that?)

He writes:
"the North Carolina GOP ad is intended to help Hillary in the May 6 primary. I mean, if the NC GOP really wanted the ad to help McCain, wouldn't they be running this ad in October or November? This is clearly an attempt to play the race and the Wright card against Obama in the hopes of hurting him in the Democratic Primary. Which suggests that there are at least some Republicans out there who still think Obama is the more formidable general election candidate."
