Dem: McCain Rises To #1 in BS Standings


I was talking to veteran Democratic media consultant Bill Carrick the other day and he dropped this gem of a quote on me, a propos of the end of college football season:

McCain was the alltime winner of the Authenticity Bowl, and he's just squandering it, slowly but surely, every day. The lesson he took out of 2000 is 'I gotta kiss ass with the base.' Lately, that's the only message that's coming out of McCain, and I'm not sure it's even working. It seems to me that the power of the Romney campaign is that he's the "Not McCain." There's not much else to it.
