So far, there has been no “convention bounce” for the Political Messiah, Barack Obama, in the polls (which we at WonderfulPessimist.com never believe, anyway, whether polls favor the candidates we like or not). It appears Michelle Obama’s address on opening night did little to inspire anyone, and neither did the naming of party hack Joe Biden as Barack’s running mate.
No June Cleaver/Clair Huxtable makeover, complete with gold anklets, has been able to make most folks forget the “for the first time in my life, I am proud of my country,” slip-up, and her delivery of “I love my country” last night was simply not said with enough passion and conviction to convince anyone but the Obama Kool-Aid drinkers.
Anyway, the latest Gallup Poll claims John McCain is now up on Obama by four points. Ehh, whatever. Considering McCain is simply “the other Democrat” in the race, running under a GOP banner, it’s not like it matters anyway.
