Running a campaign based on fear has another downside exposed: just an anecdote, to be sure, but it's a good one. From Susan of Texas:

In "Why McCain Lost " by Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair, there is a quote from a friend of the authors that cracked me up.

He added that all the talk about Obama’s links to terror, to Islam, to bombers has also had the effect of intimidating elderly Republicans from even putting McCain/Palin signs in their yards.


(NB: Link modified in blockquote, for specificity)

P.S. Just recently happened across Susan of Texas's blog, The Hunting of the Snark. Among other things, it appears that she reads McMegan, and Doughy and friends, so we don't have to. Good stuff. A recent favorite here.
