A coworker and I were talking about now that the Olympics and the NFL Season are starting up, most of the American public will divert their attention from Barak O'McCainia to more of what they really care about. I said there is a reason why elections are held in November. People care about football and Christmas presents in Novemeber.
But hold the election on April 15th each year (tax day), and see how much people care about who's running up the biggest deficit in American history. I'm betting there would be major changes a'coming then.
