Weapons of Mass Distraction

McCain to run an “historic ad” tonight speaking directly to Obama on the night of his speech.

Pawlenty canceling interviews today.

Romney family gets security sweep.

Boy, ya think McCain’s people know much about the art of distraction?

Without question, these are the kinds of leaks that are carefully coordinated. While we all know that the story of the day is Obama’s acceptance speech atop Mt. Pompous, the goal for Obama’s opposition is to make sure it isn’t the ONLY story. Distractions like the ones listed above may not offer much substance, but they pull coverage the Obama team would like to keep from themselves.

Once again, congratulations to the McCain campaign on playing the game the way it needs to be played.
