Chris Cillizza, blogging for The Washington Post:

"Bitter" and "cling" will forever be tied to Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) in the same way that "Tuzla" and "the laugh" will always evoke Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) when a political junkie thinks of the 2008 Democratic race.

And what negative words and phrases will "forever be tied" to John McCain from the GOP race, or from the general election?

Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot. Nothing negative will cling to him. Ever. That's the law. If you think he said something dumb, or indicative of a possible weakness if he becomes president, or even just annoying, then that's your problem, you latte-swilling hippie. If a candidate makes a gaffe and the political establishment doesn't snicker at it, it never happened. And with McCain, it never happens.
