This is why Obama will win...

(This was originally written September 8th. It got lost under the recap plan and the fact that the economy was sliding downhill, fast. In hindsight, I wish I'd published it)

A week ago last Friday, McCain introduced the rest of the US to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. I thought surely it's some kind of joke, until I saw her speak on Wednesday. She didn't have command of the issues and clearly still doesn't. More importantly, she typifies the Republican base in a desire to be willfully ignorant. The scary part is that her brand of folksy snark appeals to a lot of voters.

Oh, they were still going to lose. However, what the Obama campaign has done since her coming out party on the 29th has been spot on perfect.

This will not have any effect on the 25% of the country that loves Bush and the Republicans and thinks that Sarah Palin actually gets briefed at the same level as Sen. Biden (no joke, I got an email saying that earlier today). This will fire up Democrats, even the moderates. It'll also have a positive impact on independent voters (it's not mean, it's truthful and it hits).

There is one thing that is absolutely certain... Bob Shrum is NOT running this campaign. And Obama is going to annihilate McCain.
