I hope I'm wrong, and maybe I am, given where the latest polls are. What I hope to be wrong about is the relative effectiveness of pure negative campaigning, full of lies and bereft of issues. Maybe it is just because the economy is tanking, but McCain's numbers are so bad now it looks like a landslide for Obama. Maybe if that happens, this will stand as a repudiation of such Rovian tactics. Probably not, since the GOP has nothing else but that, but maybe after a few cycles of Rovian flame-outs, that would change.
