How To Lose An Election (By An Acknowledged Expert)
The Democrats have pretty much settled on their general election theme: a John McCain presidency would equal George W. Bush’s third term. However, I hope they will reconsider, and take the lead of noted loser George McGovern, who thinks the path to victory lies in ridiculing John McCain’s service to his country:
If I’d be allowed just one little dig at Senator McCain, since he gave me. I would say, ‘John, you were shot down early in the war and spent most of the time in prison. I flew 35 combat missions with a 10-man crew and brought them home safely every time.’

UPDATE 10:46 p.m.: Unrelated, but not worth a post on its own merits: I predicted Hillary by 9…the final margin was 9.2. Yeah, yeah, so that and $3.50 will buy me a gallon of gas…
