This post will be short and to the point.
BEST LINE OF THE CAMPAIGN
Chris Hayes, of The Nation, was just on Countdown with Keith Olberman, talking about the non-suspension, suspension and manufactured crises of the McCain campaign:
"It's entirely show. At this point, McCain, the gambler, the well-known gambler, is making an all-in bet on the stupidity of the American voter. That is the wager of the campaign at this moment."
"We will be able to fool people long enough that maybe, just maybe, come election day to be within striking distance in the polls...They keep trying...to untether themselves from the actual conditions in the world."
p.s., I've been thinking about this theme alot and wanting to make a video set to Kenny Rogers' the Gambler, including the following scenes: a slot machine with Palin, Lieberman, and Pawlenty; dogs playing poker including Obama, Biden, McCain, Palin and Putin, Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong-Il; a set of dice with McCain & Bush. I don't think I will have time to get it together while it is still relevant, so if anyone has any video or Flash skills and wants to give it a shot, feel free to use my ideas.
