The current sounding on the McCain campaign's confidence that they will win this election comes in the form of their latest campaign ad.
This is not the kind of thing one says when you think you are ahead, or even think you have a reasonable chance. It is what you say when you are frustrated because you are behind and angry because you can find no traction against falling further behind. It is what you say when when your sense of entitlement is so great that you cannot be graceful in defeat.
For those of us who started this election cycle trying to maintain a non-partisan balanced and fair willingness to hear each party make its case, this is the final step in the Republicans having progressively alienated me.
The most damaging argument the ad makes against either candidate's judgment is McCain's, "I approved this message."
