What a difference two weeks make! I still think Obama is going to win. He’s still a great communicator and still has the better plan for America. But, back on August 28th I did not imagine that Obama would shortly be smeared as a pedophile, that McCain would pick an unqualified running mate, that this running mate would distort her and Obama’s record and be allowed to get away with it for days on end, that the media would accept this unqualified running mate being sequestered from public questioning, and that fake charges of sexism would dominate the news for days. Good God, the market place of ideas seems to be broken this September. Fear not, there are better days ahead. I hope.
