"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Uh oh

The Troopergate report will be released on Friday.

The McCain campaign will be "making news in the morning" tomorrow.

Ruh roh! Incoming distraction stunt!

Our options are:

-Some big economic proposal. (This is my guess. It's the only thing he might do that would make his former allies in the media re-swoon.)

-Some change in his tax plan (Akin to Bob Dole's "I'm giving you money!" ploy in '96)

-A one-term pledge. (Not likely. That would be akin to telling voters that he wants Caribou Barbie to be president in no more than 4 years.)

-"Barack Obama was a card-carrying member of ___________." (I kinda doubt this. At this point I don't think the McCain people want the big smears coming straight from the candidate himself. All their Ayers insinuating has only helped Obama in recent days.)

-An endorsement. (Powell? Not likely. Bloomberg? Dunno. There just aren't that many high-profile undecided political figures out there right now.)

-Cabinet announcements. (He'd have to include a center-left person who wasn't Holy Joe.)

-The Bristol-Levi wedding date announcement. (Please let this be the one, hahaha)

-That Michelle Obama "whitey" video? Ha.
