RockBolt - 2008-10-15 I don't suppose the actual media has made this comparison
Johnny Roastbeef - 2008-10-15 The Daily Show is more actual than half of the actual media anyway.
asian hick - 2008-10-15 So is the whole McCain Presidential campaign a new segment of the Daily Show? I bet that really strained the show's budget.
IrishWhiskey - 2008-10-15 Politico said that McCain "won the day" that day.
This was despite the fact McCain was humiliated that day by their last-second decision not to unveil a plan due to campaign divisions, followed by Obama promptly announcing his. Despite a fresh batch of polls increasing Obama's leads in the battlegrounds. Despite more conservatives such as Christopher Buckley endorsing Obama. Despite his Virginia GOP chair comparing Obama to Bin Ladin in front of a Times reporter, and another case of a supporter shouting out "Kill him" about Obama at a McCain rally. Despite being mocked after leaks indicated his new middle-class focused plan centered on cuts to capitol gains taxes. Despite his latest stunt falling flat and being mostly ignored.
Why do they think he won? Because McCain managed to "dominate the news cycle".
kennydra - 2008-10-15 That was kind of creeping me out.
Rodents of Unusual Size - 2008-10-16 McCain is cloning himself! Actually that would be the only way he could be president. One McCain for every hour of the day. That way they could all get plenty of sleep and bedrest.
God, now I'm creeping mySELF out.
Keefu - 2008-10-15 Oh god. When the voices overlap.
