"Not Mad. PISSED"

The crowd was unhappy with McPain, and told him so.

Good. Damn good.

"It is absolutely vital that you take it to Obama, that you hit him where it hits, there's a soft spot," said James T. Harris, a local radio talk show host, who urged the Republican nominee to use Barack Obama's controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., and others against him.

"We have the good Reverend Wright. We have [the Rev. Michael L.] Pfleger. We have all of these shady characters that have surrounded him," Harris bellowed. "We have corruption here in Wisconsin and voting across the nation. I am begging you, sir. I am begging you. Take it to him."

McPain, of course, did not take the hint:

The crowds that show up for his rallies these days appear to have little appetite for the talk of bipartisan compromise that had been at the heart of his message around the Republican National Convention. During a rally outside a small airport in Mosinee, Wis., on Thursday, McCain said that "it's time we come together, Democrats and Republicans to work together. That's my record. I'll reach across the aisle."

The crowd stood silent.

"Across the aisle" is precisely the way Fannie/Freddie worked with their PAC donations, providing us with the suggestions below for the "Deck of Bankruptcy"...

WaPo describes the crowd as "surly."

They haven't seen anything yet.

Rarely has a presidential candidate had so much ammunition against his opponent. Yet he doesn't seem to want to load it, much less reload.

Bush 41 played Mr. Nice Guy to Bill Clinton and look where that got us.

What McCain doesn't get is that the base wants to reach across the aisle and choke him.
