Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

I, for one, am glad to see John McCain land a zinger on Barack Obama by quipping on the Democrat’s “audacity of hopelessness” regarding troop withdrawal from Iraq, obviously playing on Obama’s book “The Audacity of Hope”.

I mean, the analogy is a crock of crap, both in reference to the Middle East situation and to the phrase’s meaning (i.e., “boldness of despair”?). And it’s certainly not enough by itself to shift campaign momentum toward the Republican. But at least it’s catchy, and a sign of life and creativity from the heretofore moribund McCain campaign.
