This election was, is and will continue to be a referendum on the intelligence and integrity of the American people.
Obama is betting on the intelligence and integrity of the American public. He is betting that we care more about education and health care and responsible stewardship of the economy than we do about lipstick and pigs.
John McCain is betting AGAINST the intelligence and integrity of the American public. He is a void when it comes to policy and leadership and honesty, so he must use Rove-style politics to try to trick people or get them to vote out of naked fear.
Which will Americans choose? Either way, they get what they deserve.
