With 23 days to go and McCain looking like an electoral dead man walking, how long before GOP luminaries and pundits like Kathleen Parker, Peggy Noonan or Newt Gingrich start calling on the Republican National Committee to spend its remaining cash on Congressional races?
Think about it: Palin is doing a two-day bus tour through West Virginia – a state Obama wrote off during the primary campaign. A Republican candidate in red Nebraska is touting Obama over McCain. There’s loud grumbling from GOP stalwarts across the country that it’s too late for a comeback. The Ayers attacks haven’t worked and McCain is fumbling around for a strategy for the closing weeks.
