A Better Response To An Attack Ad

I commented earlier how I was disappointed that the Obama had his own over-simplified attack ad out, no doubt in response to McCain's attack ads. I suggested to Dave, over the weekend, that wouldn't it be more effective to take the high road and pick apart McCain's ads instead of launching your own?

Turns out, that's exactly what Obama's team is doing:

I think this is a great strategy, because not only does it combat the ad, but it further makes McCain look like he's taking the Low Road.

I guess the only catch is that this video is on YouTube, and the Obama attack ad is running in prime time. I wish they had the courage to take this sort of approach on network TV.
