Finally, we're getting a little anti-McCain action from leading Democrats! Sure, pot-shots at same-party opponents are commonplace in primary contests. Sure, we nearly always forget about them once the general election campaign ramps up. And I believe the whole "Democratic divide" meme is seriously overblown.
But the fact of the matter is, it is that storyline that is getting beaten to death in the mainstream media right now. Even on ostensibly liberal outlets like Air America Radio, and Countdown with Keith Olbermann (tell me again about this supposed left-wing media bias?). If there's anything we've learned in the last seven years, it is that a perception of reality often takes precedence in people's minds over reality.
Thankfully, the Democratic National Committee has finally produced an ad to begin chiseling away at McCain's media honeymoon.
