John McCain's campaign is "collapsing"? Sarah Palin "unmasked"?

Well, the Gallup poll does not seem to agree.

Gallup Daily: Race Back to a Tie at 46% Each

PRINCETON, NJ -- John McCain has gained ground and is now tied with Barack Obama among registered voters in the latest Gallup Poll Daily tracking update for Sept. 22-24, with each candidate getting 46% support.

This update covers interviewing conducted Monday through Wednesday, and as such includes one night after McCain's announcement that he was suspending election campaigning and flying to Washington to help seek a bipartisan solution to the financial crisis. A night by night analysis of interviewing results, however, does not suggest that McCain had a dramatically better night against Obama on Wednesday. Instead, the data show that McCain has been doing slightly better for the last three days than he had in the previous week, and with some strong Obama days falling off of the rolling average, the race has moved to its current tied position. This is the first report since Sept. 13-15, in which Obama did not have at least a one percentage point edge.
Gallup Daily: Race Back to a Tie at 46% Each

Still no sign of the Obama Tsunami.

wrong.

most Democratic voters preferred other candidates. there was no referendum on "qualified? vote yes or no."

$100 bucks says Palin couldn't even find Pakistan and Afghanistan on a map.

who here wants to bet that the ONLY reason that McCain made the super dramatic move to "suspend" his campaign -- despite the ads and the surrogates still on the teevee this morning -- was so he could draw attention to the fact that he's going to descend on washington and imperiously vote NO on the bailout so he can be a MAVERICK and be DIFFERENT from the (worst president ever) GEORGE W. BUSH?

truly, country first. right, Mr. McCain.

If "country" is a euphemism for "John McCain", then
