This should be a fun game- let’s try to figure out the smear before it happens:
Tonight, John McCain will talk directly to his opponent in a television ad his campaign is airing in battleground states, around the time Barack Obama accepts the presidential nomination, McCain’s campaign said.
Aides would give few details beyond the fact that McCain will speak directly to the camera, addressing Obama.
The strip-tease on the ad is one of several moves by the McCain campaign that could distract attention from Obama’s big night.
Ayers, Rezko, whitey- what will it be? Or is McCain going to announce he is only going to serve one term? Or will we hear about his time in Viet Nam again?
*** Update ***
Actually, as suggested in the comments, he may very well congratulate his opponent. Pretending he is running a respectful campaign after dumping the contents of the Schmidt/Goldfarb/Rove GOP bilge pump on to the airwaves for 8 weeks is just the kind of thing a maverick would do. Add to it, if there is any media dumb enough to fall for that crap, it is the American media.
