Anti-Obama Boomerang?

Why more votes for McCain might mean more Dems in Congress.

(Continued from Page 12)

The Refs Dream They're Being Worked: When McCain's campaign attacks the press, he's not "working the refs." That implies McCain's strategists still care how the "refs" make calls. I think it's pretty clear they're doing something else  (and they're perfectly happy if the refs keep making calls against them). ... P.S.: Of course the MSM "refs" like to think McCain's "working the refs," because that implies they're worth working--that their refereeing role is still all-important (as opposed to their role as, say, a totemic focus of political, class and cultural resentment!)... 3:50 P.M. link

The Palin-lovin' conservatives at GetDrunk on the McCain bailout/debate delay maneuver:

Not that anybody asked us, but we think this is nonsense.

P.S.: If McCain is driving pro-Obama pundits crazy, what has he done to Newt Gingrich?

"This is the greatest single act of responsibility ever taken by a presidential candidate ...."

[I]f you were living in the real world, if you were some hotshot young executive at a Fortune 500 company trying to rise in the ranks, and you pulled some whacked crap like this, it would probably get you blackballed permanently. People would think you were either deeply unreliable or maybe just had a screw loose.
