There is no question in my mind right now that Obama will win. If.......

That 'if' is that self unrecognized racists don't find a good enough excuse to vote for McCain. This was evident last night when watching CNN's Ohio focus group coverage. Although the metering system showed much more positive reactions to Obama's performance in the debate, the majority of them were still going to vote for McCain. It was weird that the pundits did not comment on it. This is the 800 pound gorilla in the room for the Obama campaign. Another 800 pound gorilla belongs to the McCain camp. That is the current outlook on the electoral vote map. It looks hopeless for McCain/Palin.

Thomas Friedman's column on Sarah Palin today is a must read in the New York Times.

When John McCain called Obama, "that one" it had a nucleating racist feel to it.

Made my skin crawl.

Ok, then said...

For what it's worth, there is no question in my mind that bush was never legitimately elected. Read Mark Crispin Miller's take on why Sarah Palin got dubbed, here

Scary stuff.
