Out of touch

In the latest example of McCain showing just how out of touch he is with the country, he compared Obama to William Jennings Bryan. Seriously.

Trying to emphasize his experience over Obama's oratorical skill, McCain said, "I believe that people are interested very much in substance." He added, "If it was simply style, William Jennings Bryan would have been president."

Next he's going to say that if the country wanted a basketball player, they would have elected George Gervin.

New Morning

First the Boss came out for Obama and now Bob Dylan has thrown his weight behind the Democratic nominee. What more do you need to know?

Re: What a joke

Even those at Fox News know McCain's speech was lame. Check out this great video Josh Marshall put together:

If nothing else, they're cool

What a joke

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the meaning of last night. It is complicated because of its meaning for the country, for politics, for the Democratic Party. While I attempt to put something together, I wanted to draw attention to McCain's laughably delivered speech last night. It was on before the Clinton and Obama speeches and it was a clear example of why this will be an uphill climb for the Republicans in the fall.

The speech is shown below in full. As you watch, put aside all the questions about the internal disputes in the Democratic Party. Forget for a moment that Obama has a "problem" with white voters. Just watch the person he is running against and I think it will be clear that Obama is the favorite to beat anyone who gives a speech as bad as this.

Hair Gel is back

This post earlier claimed that Romney won last night's Montana primary. In fact, he won February's caucus. So that's why no one is talking about it. My bad.
