Bismarck was right

John McCain may have had his worst month of the 2008 campaign since he faded into near-oblivion last spring.  The Democratic race finally appeared to settle; the ten-year McCain courtship of the media ended with the old maverick being dumped for the Audacity of Hype; McCain infuriates his own base with his cap-and-trade plan on "greenhouse gases;" his party loses two special elections in previously stone-cold, lead-pipe lock Republican seats; and throughout the GOP, the mood went from apprehensive to morose.

Yet with all that, according to Rasmussen, John McCain is once again ahead of Barack Obama.

That Providence is still protecting us.

Then I suppose Providence is next to Convenience. As in, the convenience of leaving out the miniscule nature of the so-called "lead" you mention, McCain 45% to Obama 44%. And the convenience of neglecting to mention that even Rasmussen quickly notes this is a "statistically insignificant" lead. And of course, the convenience of leaving out the fact Obama himself had a pretty crappy month, getting pummeled by Clinton and Wright and McCain simultaneously.

But then again, it is always convenient to leave out the facts which don't support your supposition, isn't it?
