HOYA PARANOIA (via Glenn Dryfoos):

McPalin rattles Team Obama: The Democratic ticket finds itself trapped by a McCain-Palin double-team. (Jonah Goldberg, September 9, 2008, LA Times)

Barack Obama, a famous fan of pickup basketball, must recognize his plight: It's two on one now. John McCain drafted Gov. Sarah Palin, the star point guard from the Wasilla Warriors, to double-team Obama.

(McCain's team doesn't care if no one covers Joe Biden, who seems to spend most of his time yelling to the media, "I'm open! I'm open!" But when he gets the ball, all he does is talk about what a great player he is and dribble in place.)

So after the halftime show of the political conventions, to strain the sports metaphor a bit further, it looks as if the change-up in strategy has Team Obama rattled and in danger of choking.


As Friend Brian McKim pointed out, it's kind of queer that the Unicorn Rider challenged the Saracudda to a game of H-O-R-S-E rather than one-on-one.
