Brummett visits the mythical Bubba McCoy for a sounding on the presidential race. Bubba’s no racist, you understand, but Obama? Well … McCain’s too old. He doesn’t like Hillary, but ….

Funny thing. An LA Times reporter traveling with McCain yesterday interviewed two real people — Little Rock diners at Whole Hog. One was an independent and one a Republican. One mentioned McCain’s age as a negative. Both mentioned his open-ended commitment in Iraq as a negative. The Republican said he was considering Obama.

And stop the presses: The NYT has discovered that Republicans think Obama has many liabilities to exploit.

UPDATE: At this point, it’s not likely to happen. Campaign is too far gone. But I like Hillary Clinton’s proposal for a debate with Barack Obama without a moderator.
