Yes, Obanma is unlike those other candidates he actually talk to voters and lately esp. has been connecting on the economic level in an emotive and passionate way.

He's actually been sayin' under the last Dem. administration the median family saw their incomes rise by some $7500 while under last GOP admin., Bush, this dropped $2500.

But saying it in a more folksy way--they've had eight years and they failed, he even said yesterday that McCain was flailing about erratically in ihs policy positions but when it came to Halloween costume he had one thought -- he went about dressed as George Bush!

good one.

It looks like a Brontosaurus, but then Palin thinks like one so there is some synergy.

it's now known as an apotosaurus, not a brontosaurus, DUH.

Fascinating the way there have been major inflection points in the 2-3 months prior to each election. This shows that the tides of public opinion surge wildly in response to relatively minor news items and campaign tactics, once the relatively dense majority begins to focus on the election.

Total batshitcraziness breaks out in the last month when the members of the cretin contingent try to make up their "minds"--the graphs look like random noise after this point.

Looks like the Joe-the-Plumber / "spread the wealth" meme is working in a limited way for Gramps at the moment. Please, BO/JB, don't fuck up even a little bit on Monday.
