McCain Tries The Old 'Kill Them With Kindness' Routine

According to the AP, John McCain's one-evening-only ad that will air tonight during coverage of Obama's acceptance speech with be extremely magnanimous. He will congratulate Obama on being the first black man nominated for president telling him that we'll be back at it tomorrow, but tonight is your night.

My first reaction is that it's a brilliant move. We'll have to see what kind of reaction it gets.
