Another anti-McCain cover by the New Yorker, ho hum, and this one is kinda sorta cute, but I wonder whether this is really effective? I'm not sure it is. The bitterness of the left - particularly now that McCain has caught Obama in the national polls, making a race of it - seems to backfire. (Even the battle for congress is now competitive.) As I've felt all through the Bush years, I wish Democrats would concentrate on what they think should be done, instead of personal attacks. I'm not Bush's biggest supporter, but I haven't seen much in the way of concrete proposals from the left on what they think should have been done instead. And Obama has been suspiciously lacking in detailed proposals; we are left guessing what his Presidency might look like, all we know is it will be different - somehow.
