Dept of things I think

Kinda thinking that Sarah Palin and the Gustav unconvention are going to put McCain ahead in the polls.  Permanently? I have no idea. But for awhile at least, yes. There are indicators that the former is helping, and it's worth remembering how weird the VP slot is--Cheney aside, unless McCain dies she'd be perfect.

And as far as the VP being a "corrective" to the ticket--Biden's experience, Palin's social conservatism, etc.--the angle that's not being explored is that Palin sends a message that JOHN MCCAIN IS GOING TO LIVE FOREVER.

In re Gustav (and don't forget Hanna), Dr. Jeff Masters at Weather Underground (the best weather site) and millwix at DKos are invaluable.
