The Wright Stuff?
Rev. Jeremiah Wright's narcissistic, self-absorbed media rant seems to have had the opposite of its intended effect, giving Obama a "Sister Souljah Moment." He and Hillary have now opened up double-digit leads in the national popular vote against John McCain, though obviously the electoral college picture is different. And, of course, there are still several million years between now and November. Still, it seems amazing to me that after months and months of hagiographic coverage of McCain on the one hand and Obama and Clinton pounding each other on the other, McCain is actually losing ground. This, combined with yet another Democratic pickup of a very Republican House seat, suggests that things are only getting worse for the GOP.
