VOICE: Barack Obama, John McCain, two candidates, one winner, fighting to the bitter end. The Battle of the News Headlines starts... now.
GLENN: Yes. We told you yesterday we were starting this and we were going to do Battle of the Headlines every day until my ADD kicks in and I'm sick of doing it. So this may be the last day. But anyway, Battle of the Headlines. This is where we just take the headlines out of the paper that we found during the day and compare the headlines for Barack Obama and John McCain. We'll just see, just based on the headlines, who wins in the Battle of the Headlines. Here it is. Headline number one for Barack Obama, Obama predicts black voter increase. This guy's Nostradamus. Really? Headline number two, poll finds racial division on Obama's candidacy. Headline number three for Obama, media stars will accompany Obama overseas. Surprised that one is... and headline number four for Obama, Iraq/Afghanistan, Obama's defining moment? Let's get some halftime analysis here from Stu. What do you think, Stu?
STU: That's a great effort there by Obama because, you know, he's obviously in the minority here with the drilling issue, he's had some problems lately. Luckily he was able to pull that out. Great performance by Obama in the first half.
GLENN: What are you expecting to see from John McCain?
STU: Well, John McCain, honestly he's on the right side of the issues as far as public opinion goes. I would assume the media would reflect that and that he will cruise to a victory today.
GLENN: Let's find out as we go into the second half now of our Battle of the Headlines. We now look at John McCain. Headline number one, McCain and Bush, the uneasy alliance. Headline number 2, moveon.org ad slams McCain on Iraq withdrawal. And headline number 3, McCain admits Obama "Is an impressive fellow in many ways."
VOICE: Once again Barack Obama comes out on top. Glowing headline after glowing headline. Gee, what a freaking surprise. No, seriously, what's next? Glenn's got a hairpiece? Yeah, thanks for the update.
