They seem to be getting down to last-straw mean tactics, but we have to be ready for them! The New York Times today hit the nail on the head with this headline OBAMA AND '60s BOMBER: A LOOK AT CROSSED PATHS.

This is prescient coverage, indeed, anticipating the R's next step, for anyone who is slightly paying attention now, to get ready for the next campaign barrages, which will probably go all month: Obama as Muslim, Obama as African-American,Obama as Radical, Obama as (I have even heard and rec'd such things from folks I normally consider as sane) Satanist.

Next comes Obama the Friend of the Radical Weatherman Bomber, Bill Ayers.

Well, this is what I have to say about that:  back in the late 60's and early 70's, I remember meeting Mark Rudd, and think I met Angela Davis, and golly: very early one Sunday morning after one of the famous San Francisco Peace Marches to end the Vietnam War in 1967 or was it 1968, I even saw, driving a yellow Porsche Convertible about 60 miles an hour through Haight Ashbury, JANIS JOPLIN!

I visited Patty Hearst at the San Mateo County Jail after she got arrested for Bank Robbery.  So what? I gave her Patty book to help her while away the hours. Does that mean I was in the Symbionese Liberation Army? Naaah....

Those were wild times, and sometimes I am quietly very proud of such unusual stories...

Just because twenty years ago, you befriend anyone and talk intelligently with them,  years ago: what does that mean, anyway? That you are learning. Does that mean you are sitting at the feet of 9/11 bombers? No. Of course not, but the Republicans will use this ludicrous and deranged line of reasoning to scare the elderly as they have already done in South Florida, the undecideds, the apathetics, the rural Americans who don't read the New York Times everyday, etc. And let's face it: SUCH TACTICS ALWAYS WORK ON THE PURELY IGNORANT AND RACIST AMONG AMERICANS!

AP's Headline Reflects the Republican Urgency:

Onus on McCain to Turn Race Around

Direct quote from AP: "The onus is on Republican John McCain to turn the race around under exceptionally challenging circumstances -- and his options are limited."

McCain's advisers say he will gear up major broadside attacks (that pray on the ignorance of many) by saying that Obama is "too liberal" and "too risky." 

Obama's advisers retort that McCain is incabable of communicating any economic overview different from Bush's.

Associated Press interviews nationwide show:

Democrats are optimistic of victory if nervous over whether Obama can hold his advantage while Republicans are worried that the race may be moving out of reach though hopeful that McCain will beat the odds as he did in the GOP primary. Both sides note that plenty can change in one month -- and they're right.

South Carolina GOP Chairman Katon Dawson said that given McCain's standing, ''I'd be concerned at this time, but I would never count this guy out. He's got the political hide of an alligator.''

McCain will not be able to win without keeping most of the states that Bush won, and he's tied or trailing in public polls in 10 of them -- Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, New Mexico, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia.
