like he was trying to kill you, which in most respects is true.

I’m just validating my creeping respect for the Obama campaign staff, because they’ve been roundly criticized for not being mean enough. By people of the left.

This ad has a clearly bogus component, given that McCain was joking, clearly, when he said “rich” is $5,000,000, but tough shit. Politics isn’t a kids’ game, and Obama has just shown me conclusively that he understands it. Which didn’t take much, since I’m a political junkie from Chicagoland, and know at the core of my being that Obama knows the nasty, and how to time it.
