Pathetic ... And Bound To Lose XL: ... May The Wind Always Be At Your Back ...

Oops, I almost forgot he isn't Irish.

Maybe that's why with weeks and weeks of steady gales from the media and circumstances blown at his back, including the blast of lurid pictures - and now, videos! - from Abu Ghraib prison, John Kerry still trails President Bush by a slim margin even in the generally pro-Kerry, sample-plagued USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll released today.

And yet the domestic economic beat goes on in the President's favor.

The significance being given to the Abu Ghraib prison scandal is wildly overblown from a political standpoint, as is the entire Sadr mess. In fact, the rise in gas prices is a much more threatening issue for Mr. Bush - and it's not that threatening.
