I don’t believe for a nanosecond that there is any, even a speck, of political calculation involved in Barack Obama’s decision to go to Hawaii to see his ailing grandmother.
But anyone who thinks that this (video) is going to cost Obama politically is an idiot.
Update: It seems I was wrong. According to a McCain surrogate, far from being the right thing to do, the real scandal today (as opposed to Palin’s clothes) is the fact Obama is taking his campaign plane on this personal trip.
Can someone please tell me how we managed to lose to these guys for so many years?
