Do you believe in miracles?

Pennsylvania NBC poll:

Obama 47%
McCain 43%
Margin of error: 4%

This is either a statistical anomaly or the greatest political miracle of my lifetime. But I’m still thinking about those thousands who stood in line in the cold wind to see Sarah Palin on Tuesday, so it’s impossible for me to be objective.

UPDATE: As noted here previously, some people are trying to make Palin the scapegoat for an expected GOP defeat Nov. 4. Some of those people are backstabbing assholes professional Republicans working for the McCain campaign:

John McCain’s campaign is looking for a scapegoat. It is looking for someone to blame if McCain loses on Tuesday.
And it has decided on Sarah Palin.
In recent days, a McCain “adviser” told Dana Bash of CNN: “She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone.”
Imagine not taking advice from the geniuses at the McCain campaign. What could Palin be thinking?
Also, a “top McCain adviser” told Mike Allen of Politico that Palin is “a whack job.”
Maybe she is. But who chose to put this “whack job” on the ticket? Wasn’t it John McCain? And wasn’t it his first presidential-level decision?

The thing to remember about professional political operatives is that when someone is peddling loyalty as a commodity, caveat emptor.
