The Reality of This Election

For those of you who think that I am a McCain partisan---you are wrong. I agree with Douthat.

So Barack Obama, who once claimed to embody sweeping, once-in-a-generation change, has ended up running a cautious, negative, and deeply generic Democratic campaign, while John McCain, who's supposedly all about honor and service and aching nobility, has offered a mix of snark, stunts, and manufactured controversies week in and week out.

The rest of his essay amplifies on that graf.

You have TweedleDum and TweedleDee, both massive egos, differentiated only in one regard: McCain actually has substance (most of it wrong-headed.)

Another reality is that Governor Palin is a complete airhead. Here are her exact words in response to a Katie Couric question tonight:

"We have trade missions back and forth. We — we do — it’s very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America, where — where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to — to our state."

Who was the poor dear from South Carolina who screwed up the question during the Miss USA Pageant? This answer tops that one in its disconnected vapidity.
