imageThe crazy over Barack Obama has reached newer, sweatier levels than ever before. Is he a Maoist? A Socialist? The Sexiest?

Of course, as fetid a fever swamp as the National Review is, few can ever hold a candle when Hugh Hewitt decides to fully engage his thug thizzle:

The argument about the disastrous economic policies being pushed by Obama must be made by McCain every day going forward even as the campaign continues to hammer Obama for his past judgment and future inclinations when it comes to allies and associates. Ayers-Rezko-Wright-Khalidi are part of a pattern that would certainly follow into the staffing of trhe vast federal establishment. The Daily Kos-Michael Moore wing of the Democratic Party wants its pages from the Plum Book, and the Pelosi-Reid staffers have all got their Assistant Secretary offices picked out. The Left is planning for a huge sweep, and a big party, and…

So, all that John McCain has to do is, in three and a half weeks, connect Barack Obama to Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko, Jeremiah Wright, Rashid Khalidi, Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, Michael Moore, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in a devastating 30-second spot, despite the fact that the American people are probably (if you’re feeling charitable) only familiar with two of those seven people. He then has to convince us that despite his often tenuous connections to these people, he will staff the entire government with their clones, like they’re Cylons. In fact, it would probably help if John McCain just spent his last remaining campaign dollars sending the first three seasons of Battlestar Galactica to persuadable voters in swing states, with a hundred page guide informing you that Bill Ayers is totally Leoben.

Did I mention that I have no idea who I’m voting for, and that I have Blu-Ray? Just saying.
