Cable Snooze

It's worth pointing out to the cable fables crowd that political campaigns don't actually register with normal people until some time after Labor Day. There's a long, quiet summer. Nobody but the pros are thinking campaign in July or August.

As far as polling goes, you might as well be asking hibernating bears. So, for example, when the phrase "poll of likely voters" comes up in an August poll, append the words "who didn't hang up on us in something like unhinged fury."

The question is not whether Barack Obama has broken 50% yet. That will come in November, if not sooner. The question is why John McCain is still becalmed in the horse latitudes — and who gets tossed overboard next?
