Sen. Obama: "Hey, Old People, You Suck! And You, Too, Sweetie" [UPDATED: "And Veterans With Disabilities, You're a Bunch of Losers, Too!"]
Details. And here.
Anecdotal evidence. Today, Sarah's 80+ year old grandmother was over at the house along with Sarah's aunt. Their visit just so happened to coincide with Sen. McCain's appearance on "The View", so the topic of the election came up.
Sarah's grandmother is a life-long blue-collar Northern Ohio Democrat who has NEVER voted for a Republican in her life. Just the sort of voter Sen. Obama should have in his corner. Except she's not. Knowing what I know about Elaine's politics, I was rather surprised to hear what she had to say today:
In fact, it's people like Elaine - who was probably a Hillary voter in the Ohio primary (but I don't know that for sure) - that make me think McCain is likely to win Ohio and perhaps in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
And Sen. Obama, who already had an uphill climb with blue-collar voters like Elaine, is engaging in a campaign strategy against McCain-Palin that is definitely not helping to ingratiate himself with this group.
The REAL reason Sen. McCain doesn't use email. See also Obama Ad Ridicules McCain over War Injuries.
Wow, Sen. Obama. You're just racking up the brownie points with certain constituencies, aren't you? DEFINITELY NOT ready to lead.
