If this thing gets out, Obama's done. The Jewish population alone could flip several swing states.

The L.A. Times Suppresses Obama’s Khalidi Bash Tape by Andrew C. McCarthy on National Review Online

Short story: There was a diner party for Rhasid Khalidi. He's a big PLO guy and some university professor. At this party they have some anti-Jewish poems and generally do a lot of Jew bashing. At one point Obama stands up and makes a toast to Khalidi. Bill Ayres and others were at the party. The LA Times admits they have a tape of this but refuse to release it.

A: No candidate in America gets anywhere without the blessing of the Israeli lobby. They would have picked up on this.

B: This isn't an October surprise, it's a character attack. Syria, however, could be the real deal.

Its funny that we went into Syria at the same time the Iranian Hitler "fell ill due to overwork and exhaustion". It seems like Iran got the message loud and clear - Deal with Ahmadinejad or we will. They realize the float time between 2 Presidents is a great time to do some cleanup work.

Well, he is rather unpopular. His political career thrives off of demagoguery and fear mongering, so all this talk of bombing Iran is doing is just strengthening him. On domestic and economic issues, Ahmadinejad is seen as weak (remind us of anyone?). He doesn't even control security or the military.

But as for Syria, the military seems to be goading them into an attack. Any action by Syria would swing well for McCain.
