John Deeth Blog: Time to run up the score

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

I don't want to jinx anything with a debate tonight. And I'll grant
that my location in the dark heart of the People's Republic of Johnson
County skews my perceptions. But I think we'll look back on this
election and see the middle of September as the turning point. The
economic crisis put the ball on Obama's end of the field to stay, as
McCain double-fumbled; first with the "fundamentals of the economy are
sound" (no one really believed he meant "American workers" by that)
and then with the "suspended campaign" play that failed. Not to give
too much credit to one comedian, but Tina Fey's dead-on take on Sarah
Palin has locked in her image indelibly to everyone except the core
Republican vote.
