Post-convention polls are highly unreliable. But the same Democrats who were crowing with glee a week ago about McCain's off-the-wall choice are suddenly panicking. And you can't blame them. Four years after Americans looked at the first term of the worst president in modern history and decided they liked what they saw well enough to sign up for four more years, it's all too plausible that just when victory is in sight, the most crucial election of our time could be tipped by the 11th-hour appearance of a slick, unqualified, right-wing extremist and religious zealot in designer glasses.That's certainly a non-partisan take on the issue.
There are problems with the paragraph that go beyond partisan politics. Jimmy Carter was the worst president in modern history, and he only had one term. Actually, Americans looked at the first term of the worst president in modern history and decided to elect a true conservative.
On the other hand, if you want to talk about slick, unqualified religious zealots, we only need to look as far as the Democratic nominee. Only problem is, he can't decide if he's Muslim or Christian.
The opposition should get their story-line correct.
