Of course, if...if McCain wins, it'll be trumpeted in the press as further proof that America's a racist country who couldn't find it in its heart to elect a president with a "funny name" and who "doesn't look like the other guys on the dollar bills". If that were the case, the polls cited above would have McCain out to an even further lead and wouldn't have taken until after the conventions (and the pick of Sarah Palin) to materialize. No. If Obama loses, it'll be because the American electorate has finally decided that he's too far to the left and just plain wrong on nearly every fucking issue.

A challenge to my pessimism
Much like Allahpundit over at Hot Air, I long ago resigned myself to the inevitability of a Democrat victory in November. That was in December last year, before the first primaries and the coming of The Messiah. The adoring public's infatuation with and adulation of Obama over the months that followed did little to assuage my fears.
