Senator Obama, this is truly a good day for America. You know, too often, the achievements of our opponents go unnoticed. So I wanted to stop and say congratulations. How perfect that your nomination would come on this historic day. Tomorrow, we'll be back at it. But tonight, senator, job well done.
The smirking ghoul, of course, is John McCain, and it's an ad that ran tonight. It could not be more condescending about the greatness of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Barack Obama's monumental achievement and this indisputably pivotal moment in our nation's history. This from the man who voted against the amendment to make King's birthday a national holiday.
Oh, and Obama's nomination was Wednesday, Sen. McCain. Tonight is his acceptance speech.
