After last week, I have trouble believing that the coming week could be any more crazy. And yet it could be.
1. We know that GOP runners and riders for the Congress haven’t put Dubya in their ads. But: how many of them are putting McCain in their teevee and radio spots? And, if that number is greater than zero at this point, does that number go down after the week from hell?
2. The Geezer has only a few outs left. Here’s one, maybe: Tony Rezko, according to the Sun-Times, is about ready to sing. It is unlikely, from what we know now, that Tony’s going to finger Black Eagle. But he is going to finger — if anyone — Gov. Rod Blagojevich. The truth is that Rod is universally reviled in Illinois — a showboating, photo-opping hack. (More so than you would expect, even.) The last attack ad with Rezko and Rod from Team Geezer had negligible effect. If Pat Fitzgerald hooks up Rod, can Davis, Schmidt and pals make it stick to Barry?
3. Given the setup of her being a complete dingbat (much of it self-inflicted), does Sarah Palin have anything to lose on Thursday?
5. What has a better chance of “freezing the campaign” — the Palin/Johnston Shotgun Wedding, or the Cubbies in the Series?
