Gratuitous Politickal Observation

Oh, my.

I can't help noticing that after the Obamessiah's varsity speech to his German constituents and full-bore MSM adoration this week (and, indeed, for many weeks past), somehow he's still statistically tied with McCain!

Now I have never set myself up to be any kind of political punditista, but is it just possible that this is an early sign America is not interested in electing a humorless lighweight with a Messiah complex to the Presidency this time around?

I tell you truly, friends, I've been saying all along that I thought the whole Obama Wave was just a summer thing and that it would evaporate when people actually started focusing on the choices presented them. I'm not naming calls here, since much could happen between now and November 4, but I'm not backing off my general assessment either.

You have no idea how much I hope you are right. It helps that every time Sen. B opens his mouth, he says something a bit...naive, or ignorant, or just plain out of touch with the reality of American economics, foreign policy and life in general.

Still, I'm a bit anxious about November.
