I like this ad a lot. It does several things Obama needs to do. First, it directly calls McCain a liar (which he is). Second, by entitling the ad "honor" it pushes the one button guaranteed to make McCain lose his temper and act like an out of control ass. Third, it puts the focus on McCain - Sarah who? Finally, it keeps up the message that McCain is just running for a third Bush term.

This ad is only possible because the media switched gears last week. They went from combination of cowed submission and fawning obsession with Sarah Palin to actually reporting the myriad of outright lies being spread by McCain's ads. Because the McCain ads are established as lies in the mainstream press, Obama can now run with that in an ad without having to go through a lot of clumsy comparisons and arguments first.
