It’s not often our feisty local tabloid gets to rub elbows with the Gray Lady, but New York Times Op-It Girl Maureen Dowd made that match in today’s column, which says the GOP (Gone Old Party) has essentially packed it in and started prepping for a post-Obama world.
Not even because Obama is so strong; simply because their field is so ridiculously weak and wacky.
John McCain has Aeschylated it to “a Greek tragedy.” And he should know from Greek tragedy.
“It’s the negative campaigning and the increasingly personal attacks,” he told The Boston Herald, adding, “the likes of which we have never seen.” When a man who was accused of having an illegitimate black child in the 2000 South Carolina primary thinks this is the worst ever, the G.O.P. is really in trouble.
But the Herald’s looking very smart, no?
