I will say this, though: Is it just me, or is each McCain commercial more pathetic than the last? My opinion of this guy has gone down steadily since he began to campaign in earnest a few weeks ago. You'd think someone with a background like his would be able to do more than just run attack ads and try to drive wedges between factions in the Democratic Party. But, I guess that's what Karl Rove says to do, or the Karl Rove protege running McCain's campaign.
Not that the Repugs care for McCain at all, especially not the NeoCon/TheoCons who have earned the Party of Lincoln the name "Repugnicants." But they know that there is a good chance that the few moderates and left-leaners on the Supreme Court will be coming up for replacement in the next four years, and they want to make sure those seats are filled with more Thomases and Scalias and Robertses and Alitos. Repugs will, as they are fond of saying, hold their noses and pull the lever for a man they hate because they believe he will give them the prize they truly want: a lock on the Supreme Court. Anybody who votes for McCain out of spite will share in the blame if he wins and hands the Supreme Court to the NeoCon/TheoCon gang.
I need to start getting out of the house earlier in the morning. A lot earlier. I learned this morning as I was shaving that there is some new construction along my commute, and a helpful Variable Message board on the side of the highway informed me that the delay would be approximately 12 minutes - if the construction had already started this morning. Which it hadn't. Still, there were some moving traffic waves that propagated through the cloud of cars on the highway, possibly the result of construction miles away. We'll see what happens when construction along my commute actually starts.
Well, so much for that. As soon as I finished this post, I was inspired to write another one.
