Ex-Bill Clinton flack (and current John McCain supporter) Dick Morris explains to FOX News’ Sean Hannity why he thinks Obama won the debate. Hannity’s head subsequently explodes.
In other news, expectations for Sarah Palin‘s upcoming debate against Joe Biden are now so low all she needs to do is not sound brain-damaged to "win." Was this the McCain strategy all along?
Some have been dreading an "October surprise" that would raise the GOP’s sagging fortunes before Election Day. World events could still play their part, but the McCain camp seems plum out of gambits following their ridiculous "campaign suspension" last week. Sources reveal they might attempt to squeeze some distraction out of the upcoming nuptials between Bristol Palin and her self-professed redneck beau, Levi Johnston. One unnamed advisor was quoted as saying the event would "take the focus off the the campaign(s) for a week." Is that what it’s come to? What the McCain hatchetfolk don’t seem to get however, is that any attention on Palin following a poor debate performance will only underscore the fact that she invalidates their man’s entire candidacy.
And there’s supposedly still some footage from Palin’s trainwreck interview with Katie Couric that CBS is holding back. What does McCain have over them? One can only hope these segments air (or leak) soon.
