My old Usenet linemate Mike Soja (a fierce man when after the puck) explains why McCain will snatch victory from the jaws of the Left:
Why? I think that olâ€™ silent majority is gonna kick it in the pants. The ugliness, the record decibel level of screaming gibberish of the current cycle, encouraged, ghost-written, and amplified by the press, can be traced largely to the nutcase side of things: the screaming socialists, the America-haters, the moron Hollywood “elites”, Keith Olbermann, and the frothing hordes of the lefty internet world. People see that. They know what it is. Theyâ€™re appalled, and rightfully so. You donâ€™t see â€˜em on the evening news saying how appalled they are, but theyâ€™ll go behind the curtain and clicky clicky or scribble scribble or punch punch punch and it wonâ€™t be for the untested, vague, increasingly-marxist-looking, craziness of it all.
