The Third Estate
What Is The Third Estate?
What Has It Been Until Now In The Political Order?
What Does It Want To Be?

Breathe In. Breathe Out.

I know everybody's very concerned at the direction of the campaign, but I want to reiterate that there's no need to panic yet. McCain had a successful convention that rallied his own party, but we all knew that was going to happen anyway. Polling leads in the week or so after a convention are mainly an illusion, as evidenced by the recent tightening. We really won't have a clear notion of which candidate has the advantage until after the first presidential debate (on September 26th), but all of the political fundamentals still favor the Democrats.

As for Sarah Palin, her numbers are already starting to decline, and people don't really vote for the Vice President anyway.

So chill.

  • As one of those pain in the ass independents who is still on the fence (So, shoot me), I am just waiting for the debates. The whole convention thing is just a "yippe for our side cause the other side sucks" deal.

    Don't ya just love how we muck up the whole thing! :)
