McCain Tossing Away His Chances In Iowa


The latest Rasmussen tracking poll shows Obama ahead of McCain in Iowa by 8%-- 51-43. One Iowan, though, who seems to be buying in to every bit of embarrassing nonsense that McCain has been spouting is ring wing extremist Steve King. King, of course, voted against the Paulson legislation this week and is likely to vote against any compromise that comes up later this week regardless of what McCain says he wants Republicans to do. But King, on a right-wing talk show today, said he agrees with McCain that the "fundamentals of the economy are sound" and that "our unemployment is fairly low... People out there have jobs, they’re working, the economy’s flowing."

It's good that King and McCain see eye to eye. Neither of them has any understanding of economics. Earlier today McCain met with the editorial board of the Des Moines Register. What a nasty, mean old man! I suspect he's not going to get their endorsement again:

Obama's campaign had a tone-perfect response to McCain's haughty, nasty responses. "When confronted with his discredited lies about Barack Obama's record and his own willingness to continue the same failed policies of the last eight years, John McCain offered nothing more than snide, frustrated responses. Senator McCain's sarcastic diatribe is just more evidence that he will continue the same failed tone we've seen in Washington for too long and that Americans are looking to change."

King has an opponent, Rob Hubler. He is a decent, smart progressive, and worthy of mention.
