John McCain: Obama is No Salmon P. Chase

“He’s spending an awful lot of time talking about me. You notice that?” Obama asked a crowd of just over one thousand seated in a university gym. “I haven’t seen an ad yet where he talks about what he’s going to do. And the reason is because those folks know they don’t have any good answers, they know they’ve had their turn over the last eight years and made a mess of things.”

“They know that you’re not real happy with them and so the only way they figure they’re going to win this election is if they make you scared of me,” Obama continued, repeating an attack from earlier in the day. “What they’re saying is ‘Well, we know we’re not very good but you can’t risk electing Obama. You know, he’s new, he doesn’t look like the other presidents on the currency, he’s a got a funny name.’”

True, Senator, true.

You are no Salmon P. Chase - heck not even Al Hamilton, but you are young and Hope Springs Eternal in breast of Youth.
Or, do you mean? God's Holey Haines! Race? Campaign has tanked already?

Ah, The Race Card - All 52 plus the Jokers in the Obama Deck!

Now, I wonder which of our National worthies on our spondulices John McCain most resembles?

Thanks Hot Air's Ed Morrissey!

Hickock was from Illinois, by the way.
