An Inauspicious Poll for McCain

Jonathan's right that McCain does, indeed, have a deserved reputation as this election's comeback kid. And as Boston fans well know, a fatalistic attitude isn't necessarily fatal.

Still, the Boston Globe Web site currently features a "Red Sox Confidence Meter," that weighs whether fans think the Sox can come back from a playoff deficit to win the American League championship again this year. The choices: " Yes. The last two times the Sox were down, 3-1, in the ALCS, they came back to win." Or "No. This feels totally different than those two times. This team is done."

At the moment, the "No's" have it, with 65 percent. That's better than President Bush's disapproval number -- but still an inauspicious statistic for McCain.

CLEAN SWEEP FOR OBAMA/BIDEN!

That's 4 debates, 4 convincing debate wins for Barack Obama and Joe Biden!

Obama outclassed and outcooled McCain yet again tonight.

McCain = Erratic + Grumpy + Bush clone

Obama = Composed + Calm + Real, positive change for middle class Americans

Well, another good performance for Obama tonight. McCain did well out of the gate for about 20 minutes, but then started to fall apart. In particular, his negative, bellicose attitude came across as yet another instance of Grumpy McNasty, as the CNN debate team put it.

Oh, look, it's political "analysis" from Marie Cocco, the vindictive, ranting fanatic who endlessly screeched during the primaries that every last Obama voter was inherently sexist because when any woman is ever running for office, everyone is required to vote for her solely and exclusively because she is a woman, regardless of her positions on issues. Well, I'll NEVER give ANY weight to ANY opinion that Cocco belches about ANY topic AGAIN -- but that is ESPECIALLY true of POLITICS!

Acts 13 V. 25:

And as John fulfilled his course, he said, Whom think ye that I am? I am not he. But, behold, there cometh one after me whose shoes of his feet I am not worthy to loose.

McCain or Obama in the current context?

We don't even need a fact checker here. The expression that appeared again and again on McCain's face during this final debate said only one thing. And we choose to quote from Obama's mother here, namely, 'look buster, this is no picnic for me either!'

ONLY MCCAIN HAS SO SERVED HIS MASTER THRUOUT HIS LIFE, HEREIN, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA -- ONE COUNTRY, UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.

MCCAIN FOR OUR GREAT NATION'S NEXT PRESIDENT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But McCain looked and sounded like the Old Boxer, punch drunk who got in the ring for three more fights that he should not have faced. If John wanted to be president perhaps his time would have been instead of Clinton's first term!
