    Mittch-A-Sketch possibly being dumped as the presidential nominee of those Grand Old Prostitutes due to the fuss over Bain and his secret tax returns.

    A couple of weeks ago people were writing Mittch-A-Sketch's political obituary, without one shred of evidence that it was even remotely possible.

    And yet...despite all of that lousy press by Mittch-A-Sketch, he has, in fact, improved nationally against President Obama.

    To me this race seems to have a lot of parallels to 1980, when the incumbent Democratic president, Jimmy Carter, was leading Reagan at this stage in the campaign and Reagan came across as intellectually weak and superficial.
    However, due to a lackluster economy and massive organization of the typical Republican co-conspirators behind the scenes, as well as the usual massive Republican money advantage, Reagan went on to win.

    If the economy doesn't at least improve somewhat, even marginally, between now and October, my guess is that this will be a nail-biter right through November, with the possibility that Mittch-A-Sketch pulls out the election in the end with a different type of "October surprise" in the form of massive amounts of unlimited secret corporate cash--perhaps a half a billion dollars or so-- over the final two weeks, focused on just 5-7 swing states Romney would need to purchase himself the White House.

    Not only is this election not over like so many people were claiming just two weeks ago, but, unless the economy shows some improvement, the odds could quickly turn to Mittch-A-Sketch's favor after the conventions.
