McCain has run a dreadful campaign but perhaps the worst thing he's done is assault Obama's character so much, that his supporters bought all the lies coming out of the republican party. They've become a mob.
Now it seems every McCain supporter says Obama is a communist, which is totally absurd. We've seen masses of people get suckered before our very eyes. We've seen their mob mentality building. This shouldn't be underestimated.
Both candidates have been engaged in negative campaigning but there's a difference between Obama's negative ads and McCain's negative ads.
McCain's exploit people's fears to assault Obama's character. Obama's assaults McCain's policies. See the difference. One is saying the other is a secret Muslim who hangs with terrorists and is going to usher in communism. The other says the other guy is going to be bad for the economy.
McCain should be embarrassed of his campaign. But perhaps, like George Bush, he's in a bubble and doesn't know what's become of it. Maybe he hasn't seen the rage of his supporters.
Now it seems Palin's ego is so inflated that she's spinning off. She is not fit or worthy to be president. Heck, she's not even fit to be governor of Alaska:
Politico: Even as John McCain and Sarah Palin scramble to close the gap in the final days of the 2008 election, stirrings of a Palin insurgency are complicating the campaign's already-tense internal dynamics.I'd also like to add that McCain Palin supporters ought to be considering an Obama win and they ought to figure out how they'll behave if he does win and they ought to choose to let it go.
Four Republicans close to Palin said she has decided increasingly to disregard the advice of the former Bush aides tasked to handle her, creating occasionally tense situations as she travels the country with them. Those Palin supporters, inside the campaign and out, said Palin blames her handlers for a botched rollout and a tarnished public image — even as others in McCain's camp blame the pick of the relatively inexperienced Alaska governor, and her public performance, for McCain's decline.
"She's lost confidence in most of the people on the plane," said a senior Republican who speaks to Palin, referring to her campaign jet. He said Palin had begun to "go rogue" in some of her public pronouncements and decisions.
"I think she'd like to go more rogue," he said. Read more about the divisions within the campaign.
