We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Everybody has ideas for McCain. Anchoress posts this idea. I like it, but it's not a game-changer.
Why isn't it? Because people are worried about the future. Revenge and justice for the Fannie and Freddie Dem sleazes can wait, and will be served cold - in the increasingly unlikely event that McCain wins the election.

Creeping fatalism abounds. I admit the deck is stacked with the MSM in the Obama camp and McCain doing his best to lose it, but we still have Palin and shes a fighter. A lot can happen with Obama's liabilities (friends) in three and a half weeks. Us talking like he can't win is as foolish as McCain giving up in Michigan.
Amen, Sean, how can Obama reassure anyone about the future with his "unenhanceable" resume of no accomplishments and heavy baggage? There's plenty to do in the next 3 weeks, 3 weeks is an eternity in politics, and sometimes 3 days can be an eternity, just ask losing candidates. I think the Obama Campaign is tryingto run out the clock, dreading the end game, because they know electoral history: Republican candidates are usually trailing in the "polls" until the last week, when decision time is nigh, closing fast as the finish line appraoches.
Besides, you still haven't seen the McCain-Palin Campaign's best tv ads, or the right wing 527 ads either. There are some hard hitting ads yet to come- perhaps the "Otcober Surprise"- which will make the direct comparison between McCain and Obama and showing the latter by comparison to be woefully not up to the job. The question is: Who Is Obama? Answer: Nobody knows. Is that who you want leading this nation? In times of uncertainty voters will go to the default choice, i.e., McCain.
And the potentially explosive impact of growing voter fraud by Obama supporters in a number of states is yet to be fully realized in the campaign. It may blow up in their faces very soon; Obama has not only long ties to the fraudsters, the corrupt ACORN, but ACORN, i.e., community organizing, is the most prominent line on Obama's "resume", he cannot run away from this potentially fatal connection. It could create a major backlash and turn many Independents, Blue Dogs and Hillary voters away from Obama in the home stretch.
We should all pray that the margin of McCain victory is beyond the "margin of litigation", to avoid an ugly post-election scene. Question is: If Obama "wins" a swing state (s) within a "margin of litigation", will McCain go to the mat and expose the fraud or will he concede in the wake of being charged with "your racism is further dividing the country"?
Agree. Fox news is playing the current voter fraud, ACORN thing, every fifteen minutes now. They're also mentioning Ayers and experience, and I think they are the only channel talking about the Corsi thing - which could be a very bad thing for Obama.
Campaign ads in the last two weeks could do the trick. Or human nature's instinct for statesman-like leadership will kick in behind the curtains and give people a reality check when they envision: President Barack Obama or President John McCain. Of the United States of America.
