Mara Liasson on NPR this morning, talking about Barack Obama's advertising:

He's reached saturation levels.... To me, it is the one and only reason why he is winning on the question of taxes: because he has repeated in advertising this -- this claim that he's going to reduce taxes for 95 percent of America.

I love the insinuation there: he's not winning because he actually isn't going to raise taxes on the bottom 95 percent, he's winning because he keeps saying he isn't, , sleazy bastard that he is, and he's using the sleazy tactic of assuring people of this over and over again on TV. If it weren't for that, we'd have a proper election, in which everyone just knew that the Democrat planned to tax everyone into the poorhouse, regardless of what he or she said.
