The Wall Street Journal blog describes senior McCain aide, Mark Salter, as “giddy.” It quote him as saying:
We feel like we’ve been saying all week. We’re well within the margin or on top in all these battlegrounds. We got a real good shot at catching the guy.”
A really good chance at catching the guy. Now, how would that me? Here are some of the national polls coming out today:
No candidate for president since Andrew Jackson in 1824 has captured more than a point lead and not won the Electoral College, but Salter believes the data supports a McCain win, a McCain win that they have been guaranteeing all week.
Now Mark Salter might be giddy because he doesn’t get enough sleep. Or he might be giddy because he is drunk or high. Or he might be giddy because he is absolutely certain they are going to win. I would like to know what you all think would make Mark Salter giddy on the eve of an apparent landslide loss?
