Looking Ahead (OR What’s in store)

As I mentioned in my last post, there doesn’t seem to be much new to talk about. Still, I was stuck by this post from the Wonk Room and thought it would be good for us all to be reminded about what a terrible thing a McCain Presidency would be.

There are lots of pretty (and pretty disturbing) graphs to go a long with it…  go read it.

And yes, stats like these make me wonder why any middle class person would support a Republican on economic grounds.
