They should require an IQ test...

for campaign staff. This is hilariously dumb. I love that -- for fear of seeming insensitive -- the press took the default line that the woman had been assaulted by a dyslexic robber who carved a backwards B on her face, until she basically confessed to doing it herself.

There has been a lot of campaign activity in PA. McCain seems to want to go all in there, but a fairly wide range of polls shows Obama leading by 10+ points -- which is not surprising, really, given these historical trends. (Cost is very good on PA, being from there.) Democratic candidates do 3-5 points better in PA than nationwide, and Obama has a 7 point lead nationwide.
