I thought this was amusing. #4 on CBS News’s “7 Worrisome Signs for Obama“:
Bad times could be good for McCain. If anger helps Democrats, fear advantages Republicans. A growing number of Democratic strategists worry that some swing state voters may opt for McCain if the economy veers from merely awful to downright terrifying.
Wow. So if Heath Ledger as the Joker threatens to blow up all of the nation’s banks, McCain wins.
Always nice to realize that the possibility of our economy becoming “downright terrifying” is highly plausible.
