Oh so true

From Josh Marshall at TPM:

As you may know, the McCain campaign has just put out a web video called 'Obama Love' a mash-up of clips of various TV commentators gushing over Obama. But let's remember we've all seen the McCain Love video. It's called watching the last dozen years of political television. Indeed, the political press's reckless and giddy love for McCain is so universally acknowledged that McCain himself has often joked about the press as his "base." So what do we have here but a candidate who can't brook the idea of not campaigning on a wave of press adulation? And now he's framing his whole candidacy around a campaign of strategic whining about the claim that the political press is treating his younger opponent like he's been treated for over a decade. He's got the preening and envy of a sore losing runner-up for prom queen.
Here are the latest numbers from the big 3:,, and

Electoral-vote: Obama 312
McCain 199 Ties 27

Electoralmap: Democrat: 306 Republican: 216 Dead Heat: 16

I'm trying not to be to presumptuous about this, but I honestly don't see how McCain can win in November. I'm not saying that because I prefer Obama, but because the McCain campaign seems unable to get on its feet, which is why they've resorted to complaining about any- and everything that Obama does (kind of like Kerry seemed to do in '04).
