Those wacky cosmic tumblers

Me, 10/7:

The McCainiacs have to be kicking themselves -- they thought that the "success" of the surge would turn their biggest liability into a decisive plus. In fact, all the surge has done is demote the Iraq issue in the minds of voters.

George Will, 10/9:

The success of the surge in Iraq, for which McCain justly claims much credit, is one reason why foreign policy has receded to the margins of the electorate's mind, thereby diminishing the subject with which McCain is most comfortable and which is Obama's largest vulnerability.
I stand by my scare quotes, and would argue with Will's gloss, but on the whole we are in some strange times when George Will and I agree on anything.

There is out of touch and there is delusional, George Will is the former.
