The Bottom Of The Political Barrel

- "Who cares about how much she spent at Bloomingdale's? What Americans are really concerned with is the fact that Barack Obama is using the campaign 767 to visit his ailing, deathly grandmother, who raised him since he was a wee sprat. Am I right? Hello?"

- I have seen a lot of things in my time, but this one is new. For now, I will call it The Pity Pander.

Not sure how it's supposed to work, but I'm wondering if the desired effect is to get the Obama camp to let down its guard and start feeling cocky. Get them to start feeling as if everything is going along fi--BOOM! In your face, Obama!

Or is the idea to get voters to get all mushy at the puppy dog eyed grandpa and pull the lever for him?

Yeah, either way, good luck with that.

i love how the news anchor laughed at the sad attempt to brush aside Palin's average hockey-mom spending on attire.
