It's Over: Why Bill Ayers Won't Save John McCain  —  Perpetually fretting Democrats will not want to accept it.  The campaigns themselves can't afford to believe it.  Many journalists know it but can't say it.  And there will certainly be some twists and turns along the way.
Mike Allen / The Politico:
Exclusive: Obama to hit McCain on Keating Five  —  Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) on Monday will launch a multimedia campaign to draw attention to the involvement of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in the “Keating Five” savings-and-loan scandal of 1989-91, which blemished McCain's public image and set him on his course as a self-styled reformer.
Thomas M. Defrank / NY Daily News:
Insults fly as Barack Obama & John McCain prepare for second debate  —  WASHINGTON — It's getting McNasty again.  —  A day after Sarah Palin accused Barack Obama of “palling around with terrorists,” Obama struck back Sunday with a tough ad painting John McCain as “erratic.”

In 1996, Media Coverage of Bill Ayers Was Too Extensive to Believe Obama Did Not Know Who Ayers Was  —  Barack Obama's chief strategist, David Axelrod, claims Obama did not know that Bill Ayers was a domestic terrorist.  You can see the claim here.  —  I think that is fatuous nonsense.  Why?

Lieberman: Palin Will Win “With God's Help”  —  Via CNN streaming video, I watched Sarah Palin's event in Clearwater, Florida, this morning.  She was heartily introduced there by John McCain's pal Joe Lieberman.  The former Democrat is a very strange figure these days, far from his moorings in the Democratic Party.
