McCain Loses Charles Krauthammer

My head just exploded.
Krauthammer's Hail Mary Rule: You get only two per game. John McCain, unfortunately, has already thrown three...In an election in which all the fundamentals are working for the opposition, he feels he has to keep throwing long in order to keep hope alive. Nonetheless, his frenetic improvisation has perversely (for him) framed the rookie challenger favorably as calm, steady and cool. In the primary campaign, Obama was cool as in hip. Now Obama is cool as in collected. He has the discipline to let slow and steady carry him to victory. He has not at all distinguished himself in this economic crisis -- nor, one might add, in any other during his national career -- but detachment has served him well...he's got both a first-class intellect and a first-class temperament. That will likely be enough to make him president.
He's not an Obama fan, repeating BS about Obama having "an alarming lack of self-definition -- do you really know who he is and what he believes?" when that's been clear for most of the past two years, and claiming that, in the primaries, Obama "rose above the crowd on pure special effects: dazzling rhetoric, natural charisma, and a magic carpet ride of transcendence and hope." And having been against the Iraq War from the beginning, Chuckles. That may seem trivial, but it was rather important to millions of Dem primary voters.

But still, McCain losing Krauthammer...who knew that was even possible?
