This is just more hype by a media in the tank for Obama. Nice poll. More people want to watch football with Obama than McCain. Do ya think it might have something to do with the age difference? Just where does McCain fit into the culture of cool managed by the media themselves?  He doesn’t, while Obama could be a figure on any given sitcom. I don’t know if his persona is authentic or not. What I do know is that he gets on stage and reads a teleprompter with the best of them. He should have been an actor.

Anyhow, since the media has been pitting Obama against Palin for all intents and purposes, perhaps the poll should have been between those two.

In rare form, CNN gets their digs in on Palin with never a word to even make anyone imagine that there might be a tarnish on Obama’s well polished facade.

I do have to give props to the author of the article about the Spanish radio ads. He gets a lot of things not only right, but points out where the Obama ad is just plain wrong. He also writes about how Limbaugh was grievously misquoted.  Limbaugh was actually reading the actual immigration laws of Mexico, not some that he made up himself.

The headline of the day here for me is the one asking, “Who sang for Obama?” This is mixed in with news about Rep. Foley and raids in Iraq. Sure it’s a link to a quiz. Obama is used as the lure, but just another example of the media shrouding him in a culture of cool.
