Phil Johnson over at Seeing the Forest sees one of the important differences between these two campaigns for the Presidency.

Compare the reaction of Obama and his campaign to last nights “that one” comment by McCain, to McCain and his campaign’s reaction to Obama saying that McCain’s policies put “lipstick on a pig.”

Basically the Obama reaction was to ignore it, while the McCain campaign and supporting Republican noise machine went into a several-day hissy fit.

I was visiting with a college student recently who told me it seems to him that our government is constantly trying to scare us to death – one thing after another! Funny. I wonder why it seems that way.

After eight years of government by fear and hysteria, it is going to be a relief to have some reasonable adults in charge.
