McCain to Act More Like McCain

The warning from the McCain compound came this weekend that they were going to close their eyes and start kicking. Remember how good that looked when Elaine Benes did it?

And they're off. The first pile of fresh...ideas...comes from Sarah Palin:

Our opponent though is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect— imperfect enough that he is palling around with terrorists who would target their own country

So they've played the palling-around-with-terrorists card. It's almost like they want to make sure that they don't respect themselves when this is all over.

About 5-10% of my students said they "didn't believe Obama was a Christian" in a recent in-class writing... and a greater percentage said they wouldn't vote for him because he doesn't put his hand over his heart when he says the pledge of allegiance (or a variation on that theme: that he refuses to say the Pledge altogether).

Where do you think this kind of collective un-wisdom comes from? My point is that the Elaine Benes technique might actually resonate among... certain... "folks."
