The John McCain Googlebomb
News of an attempted anti-McCain googlebomb has been going around the blogosphere. What if it backfires? After all, the bigest problem facing Republicans is the fact that much of the Republican base has gotten tired and might not care for an openly-moderate Republican. News items such as McCain says overturn the law that legalized abortion might help with the turnout. It might also help with the votes of people young enough to have been legally aborted. (Slogan: “The Democrats don't care if you were never born!”)
Other items such as McCain blasts Obama's and Clinton's attacks on NAFTA might help with the Hispanic vote and also help get the votes of those liberals who really are intellectuals. By supplying a respectable reason to vote Republican it might encourage us wingnuts to come out of the closet, which could affect long-term politics.
