If This Gets Out, McCain is Done. Period.
- For those of us following the election, it's become clear McCain's final strand of hope over the last couple of weeks has been calling Obama a socialist. This tiny, tenuous foothold was given to him by Obama when he said the phrase, "spread the wealth" when talking to the now famous Joe the Plumber.That's it. That's what McCain has at this point. And he's been trying to ride it all the way to election day.And it's also why the following quote, if effectively communicated, equates to the end of McCain's campaign. Quite simply, McCain was asked at a townhall meeting if it was fair for the rich to pay more in taxes. Here's was his answer:
"When you reach a certain level of comfort, there's nothing wrong with paying somewhat more."
