Sarah & Joe's Sinking Narratives

Republicans hoped for more buoyancy from "reformer" Sarah Palin and "common man" Joe the Plumber. Both narratives have huge holes, somehow missed by the McCain campaign. Sarah is sinking fast, despite a Saturday Night Live good sport patching. Joe the Plumber floats like a basin wrench.

The McCain camp shows Bush-like tendencies, dealing with the reality they want, not the one most people experience. Which Republican 527 bid $800,000 for the web address, to push the narrative? The good news is this election, most people will vote. The question remains, will they count?
