I’ve been reading my usual roundup of left-wing blogs and political Web sites, and there’s fuck-all about Barack Obama on them. It’s wall to wall Sarah Palin with the occasional news bite about McCain. It reminds me of a couple months ago when the right-wing blogs and magazines were all Obama, all the time. 

In other news, John McCain pulled ahead of Obama in all the the FiveThirtyEight indicators. Today, I think, was the first time that’s happened in awhile.

I can’t help but think these things are related. And it seems the Obama campaign might think so too. Marc Ambinder suggests that the 527s are on the way.
