Talk about the ultimate rope-a-dope.  It seems as though the McCain campaign has walked right into Team Obama's grand strategy.

So, the McCain campaign wants to play tough...well, I happened to be perusing Barack's youtube page when, BLAMO, The first video that pops up is a doozy with a link at the end to a website called keatingeconomics.com...and it cuts Mr. Maverick to shreds.

Check it out and there's one more video below the fold!!!

I knew it.  I just knew that the jedi masters that are running the Obama campaign had this prepared all along.

For a few hours yesterday I was really woried that in the final 30+ days, the only potential achilles heel would be how to respond to the repugnant attacks from the McCain campaign.

Well, now my worries have gone away (for the most part) because here's my very poor progression for what the Obama campaign has done!!!

A.  Let McCain twist in the wind as his poll numbers go further and further down.

B.  Let McCain be the incorrigible and intolerant old man in the first debate while Barack always stays classy San Diego, cool, calm, and collected.

C.  Let Governor Pavlov spew her nonsense during her propaganda  debate knowing it won't change the polls.

D.  Let the McCain campaign become so desperate that they resort to their tried and true smear and fear tactics.

E.  Instead of the Obama campaign taking the first volley, they plan and plan and plan, and then unload, unload big time in an excellently orchestrated "attack." Apparently the Obama campaign has made a mini-documentary about it, anticipating the McCain slime campaign!

Let's see which attack angle will work:

Trying to tie 8 year old Barack Obama to William Ayers.

Trying to tie 50 year old John McCain to the savings and loan scandal and following his mavericky path of deregulation for all his time in Congress.

Hmmmmmmmm, what will voters care more about??

So, in other words, THEY'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS ALL ALONG!!!

As in like this....

I'm sure somewhere in the desert, Senator McCain is practicing his tried and true Tuesday night debate speech:

"Well my friends (shuffling note cards)....change is coming to Warrrshington my friends (further shuffling note cards)....and when Governor (looks down at note cards) ..pa pa Palin and I get to Warrrshington, we're gonna Maverick it up my friends...."

And somewhere in the hills of Asheville, North Carolina, Team Obama is cool, calmly, and collectedly ready to show Senator McCain and Governor Pavlov how to debate on Tuesday night.

Keep up the fight everyone.  Do whatever you can as often as you can.
Go Barack!!!  Go Fightin' Joe!!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
