The Short Attention Span Society
- I wake up this morning and The Today Show informs me that suddenly after a week of hearing about Obama's post-convention bounce, John McCain is now ahead and has all the momentum. Supposedly white women voters, who as recently as last week were supporting Obama nearly 10 percent more than McCain, were now supporting McCain 12 percent more than Obama. Naturally the on-air pundits attributed nearly all of this to the surprise addition of Sarah Palin to the GOP ticket, but would that many white female voters simply switch sides like that? Are they that ideologically flexible?
