As you may be aware, La Palin has been sliming Democrats and goosing her wingnut base all over the country, so much so that many wags presume she is the Real Republican Candidate for President, McCain is just a placeholder.
Meanwhile, Obama has mostly been lying low, and the Dem VP candidate, a certain Senator from Delaware yclept Joe Biden, who was elected to the Senate when he was only 29, has almost vanished. HE who was supposed to be Obama's Attack Dog in the Down and Dirty General Election Race. Vanished. Gone by-bye. Said Hillary might have been better.

Of course this is all supposed to be because of the Hurricane and how unseemly it would be to campaign and criticize during such a tragic event.
Oh, big sigh.
