God, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll: The McCain end game is no surprise

Excerpted from this post at God, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll

During primary/caucus season, the potential nominees slug away at each
other, testing themes that might cause partisans to decide that a
particular candidate is too weak to win the general election for the
party. Hillary Clinton tried the "William Ayers/Tony Rezco/Jeremiah
Wright" connections theme -- but Democratic voters decided that those
issues didn't deter them from thinking Obama was the stronger general
election candidate. Please spare me the shocked indignation now that
the McCain/Palin ticket has advanced into the end game that Obama knew
was coming: the questioning of his judgment and philosophy through his
past associations. The Obama campaign was prepared and is in full
response mode. Keating Five, anyone?
