How to deny Florida to McCain

This is being promoted by the Florida Democratic Party as antidote to those who think Barack Obama will certainly lose the Sunshine State.

I've got to agree with that Republican on the plane: John McCain is outa touch.

Note that this piece has almost all Republicans talking. It's so good to see that they are just as good as we are at damaging our candidates in the primary fuss. The Republicans thinned their crowd of candidates down to one so fast that we've sort of forgotten that they criticized each other right to the bone, but now we're in the final lap -- Lord, almost five months of it! -- and we should see many of their own telling quotes on why John McCain is a loser.

UPDATE: The Palm Beach Post has an editorial explaining further why McCain is outa touch on catastrophe insurance. Are we surprised that he's not clued in -- the guy who confuses Iraq and Iran, Shiites and Sunnis? This style of studied ignorance was a feature of George W. Bush's 2000 campaign for president. Was it part of the business that he's a guy you'd like to have a beer with? Only if it was someone likely to take instruction, maybe. Voters have had it with dumb guys running for president. I don't mind if the Republicans pin the elite label on Obama. Let's have a superior president, for a change.
