Fear And Loathing, Hope And Wonder In Campaign '08

Back after a long silence and talking politics.

Just a quick note tonight.

Is is just me or does anyone else find Karl Rove predicting an Obama win in November is more of a threat than an observation? If you don't know what I'm talking about, follow the link: http://news.aol.com/elections/article/obama-would-win-today-rove-says/200842?icid=100214839x1211086526x1200675227

Reading that reminded me of the scene towards the end of Chris Rock's Head Of State when right wing radio hosts warn Californians of an impending win by Rock's Mays Gillium (please forgive me if I get it wrong and don't look it up so I get it right), which sends tons of Orange County white folks into the streets in a panic.

With a month left to go, all the weapons at the Republicans' disposal will be drawn.

This may just be the first serious shot across the bow of Obama's ship.
