06:19 pm - Doing the right thing
Well, it looks like McCain is finally getting the message. Hate and fear won't get you elected and, in the meantime, makes you look like a douchenozzle.

Now, is this abrupt change caused by the backlash against his former tactics (as seen in Wisconsin, just a little bit ago) or might this have something to do with the problems Norm Coleman is having with his negative campaigning that caused him to declare that he's pulling all his attack ads? Some combination thereof? I dunno.

I am just glad that I can watch political coverage and not have to throw up for a few minutes when the latest McCain/Palin rally is covered.

"...beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression. The dark side of the Force, are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you, it will…as it did Obi-Wan's apprentice."

Too late I fear, for McCain. Still, good to see him at least try. I hope he's being sincere, and not just backpedaling because it got out of hand.

I think, as always with politicians, that it is a little of both: Yes, he's probably troubled by it; yes, it's a calculated move...
