Well, as if it wasn't already obvious, we learned last night the entire depths of the McCain STRATEGY... A noun, a verb, and POW!!!
Having abandoned his social principles to court the right, having nothing of substance to say to the average guy on the economy, and having jumped on the wrong train with the Iraq war, he is left with nothing of substance but the power of his own personal story...specifically his having the misfortune of getting tortured for 5 years by the Viet Cong.
McCain and his posse are betting that personality and fear can trump the obvious self-interest that would better be served by an Obama presidency. He's figurin' that, when push comes to shove, low-info voters will head to the all-American tough guy rather than the inteeeelektual Harvard kid, and he's playin' the POW card at every opportunity.
Now, what else might he do... I got it!!! A bear-skinnin' beauty queen!!!
