That’s the official figure. Like more or less everything else “official” it’s false, phony, fake. Jiggled. Double it and maybe – maybe – it’s more or less accurate. So yesterday the Republican wrapped their convention, McCain gave his “Why Can’t We All Just Get Along” talk, after his self-described lipsticked pit-bull had made clear just why. McCain is running against DC, where he’s been for too long to remember. Ah well. So we enter our slightly shortened presidential campaign period, 8 weeks of blather, while operative of the RNC jiggle the voting machines, laws, etc. and do their best to bend the machinery enough to win with their “mavericks” McCain and Palin. Well, who knows anymore just how the fix can be fixed.
So we enter the ridiculous once-every-four-years US election cycle countdown. 2 more months. Blather blather blather. I haven’t seen any recent polls to suggest Palin bounced things up or down, nor anything else. Just a lot of hyperventilating, distraction from McCain, the issues (but McCain operative says the election isn’t about issues…), etc. Par for the course….
