Legends of the Fall
Some musings on a McCain vs. Obama line-up in November, including some worrisome poll-numbers that show McCain ahead on every issue but healthcare and with a slight (within the margin-of-error) lead overall. Part of this clearly has to do with the "experience" meme and it lines up with how the general election will go; McCain will flog experience over and over and over and tut-tut about how Young Barack doesn't understand "the Real World" (though to his credit, Obama seems to be pretty quick on the draw at pushing back). Meanwhile, under the radar, the RWHMMC will be screeching that Barack is a "mooslum," a commie, a Nazi or all three simultaneously (aided and abetted by Your Liberal Media), and below that will be the less thinly-veiled racism. I need to see less silliness from the Obama Campaign about carrying Kansas and other delusions and more confirmation that they realize this, like 2000 and 2004, will be a tough, brutal campaign, probably very close, and that they understand just how tough McCain will be to beat.
