How to Lose an Election

The Beer: I'm drinking a very nice California Cabernet tonight (yes, I drink something besides beer.

The Bicycle: Out for a decent ride for the first time in about 3 weeks and I can feel it. At this age, one loses fitness in a hurry. No flat tire, although the brake pads need adjusting to keep them from rubbing on the rim (wierd. They didn't do that before). It's getting cooler. I don't like it.

The VRWC: The Obama campaign has come up with the best way to lose an election: Focus on and viciously attack the Vice Presidential candidate. For whatever reason, the Democrats feel they need to go after Palin, instead of McCain. Voters don't care about Palin (at least the undecideds don't). The afternoon talk guy here (Mark Belling - WISN radio) made a good point: Democrats can't muster enough hatred for McCain because he's been such a "bipartisan" guy. This is the same reason conservatives are less-than-happy with the selection. But we all recognize the down side of an Obama presidency.

This is priceless. But it's also the reason Democrats can't stand her. Let's see....4 years of McCain, followed by 8 of President Palin? I can handle that.
