    If they stay slipped, it's all over for Maccers.

    I actually sympathize with the McCain campaign. First, they're now taking their cue from right wing talking points--which mean their strategies are broadcast loud and clear to Obama.

    Second, their line has degenerated to "Who is Obama, anyway?" The question could so easily be turned around on a man (and a good man, mind you) who has pulled so many stunts and reversals at this point he doesn't even know who he is.

    What's even sadder is how closely these tactics echo the 2000 campaign where McCain had to withstand racebaiting whisper campaigns about his adopted daughter and questions of his sanity after being a prisoner for 5 1/2 years.

    Taibbi's new piece in the latest issue of the Stone talks about that exact point.
