Noted: If you aren't watching the NewsHour's 15 minute Political Wrap every Friday well, you ain't living.
In any event, last night David Brooks said this about the Republican Party (and Team McCain):
There is a temptation to run against Obama -- Jeremiah Wright, liberal college professor, pointy-headed elitist -- Republicans know how to run that campaign blindfoldedWe absolutely agree.
We know it does not work. We've seen it fail in these congressional elections we've just had. We saw it fail in 2006. It will fail, it will fail, it will fail.
Or, to put it another way (as we wrote back in July of '07) - In 2008, George W. Bush trumps Teddy Kennedy. And not in a good way for Republicans.
