You know, campaign rhetoric is going to to escalate as the season drags on. What shocks and impresses in week 1 isn't going to register on week 25. So words get punched up a lot as things go on. "Pro-choice extremest" in July becomes "baby-killer" in October. So what does it say that the field for November isn't even officially set yet, and already McCain is getting compared to Jesus and Obama is getting attacked as an unamerican half-breed who lacks the "heritage" to be President. We have five months left and nowhere to go but down.
