Palin excitement levels off as Democrats regain lead
It looks like the Sarah Palin phenomenon is already fading away. John McCain was hoping to generate some excitement to his campaign by going outside of his comfort zone. He needed to diversify beyond the only group he has solid support: a bunch of old white male geezers
like himself and Steve Sailer, slowly dying away and near their death beds, and failing to repopulate for future years
So he picks Sarah Palin, a relatively young woman who is governor of Alaska. It did generate hype and excitement, but failed to solidify into substance. It's hard to trust someone with limited leadership experience, except for leading some distant, scarcely populated rural areas in a distant state outside of the contiguous United States. And then the numerous controversies about Sarah Palin, way too long to list here, but you can find them on the internet.Obama makes gains in national polls
To bad for the McCain camp that Americans have far more important issues, like the crumbling economy and wondering what will happen to their career or if they will even have a house to live in next month.
Obama and Biden recognize this and make relevant campaign issues out of this, and it works for a stronger and better America.Obama's Limbaugh ad causes stir
Finally, Rush Limbaugh gets a taste of his own medicine of race baiting as Barack Obama capitalizes off loser Limbaugh and gets the last laugh. Obama TV commercials in Spanish targeting the Latino community "aims to connect McCain to Republicans who have staked out staunch anti-illegal immigration stances — including talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.
"They want us to forget the insults we've put up with, the intolerance," the television ad's narrator says in Spanish as an image of Limbaugh is quoted saying, "Mexicans are stupid and unqualified" and "Shut your mouth or get out." "
Rush Limbaugh notices and protests, claiming Obama is resorting to lowball race baiting, but there is nothing false about the contempt Rush said or feels about Latinos. Rush is the real race-baiter who started everything, so go stick that microphone up your lardbutt ass, you drug-addicted, failed family raising, depressed loser, Rush Limbaugh.
