It has now become a war of attrition with the Obama Campaign having the decided advantage of having their attacks and press releases uncritically repeated to the American people by their cohorts in the media. Attacks and criticisms of Obama are either going to be ignored or presented in a way designed to mitigate their effectiveness.
The media has already begun the steady drumbeat of articles purporting (primarily via deliberately misleading headlines, ledes) to call into question the credentials, honesty and integrity of both principals on the McCain/Palin ticket.
