I lived in Memphis for a brief period of time. Down there, I used to drive myself crazy trying to find anything other than country music on the radio. Here in Orange County, California, seems like every AM station is occupied by right-wing talk show hosts. Thankfully, not all of them are jerks. On my way to the library, I actually heard one of them, unmistakably conservative, admit that Bush lost the debate last night. Of course, he went on to offer an apologist's version of the spin.
This election is likely to be won by a razor-thin margin. It's now one month to the showdown day, and you can bet many Republican strategists had a full Zantac attack last night.
