Voice: Barack Obama, John McCain, two candidates, one winner, fighting to the bitter end, the battle of the news headlines starts now.
Glenn: Well, it's whewy. It's been close. So far we go to we go to Stu for some of the stats in the previous races. It is a very, very close race as we compare the headlines in the paper every day, that the media has reported on McCain versus Obama and how close are we?
Stu: Well, right now, Glenn, we have a complete shutout with Barack Obama, all of the wins and McCain, none of the wins.
Glenn: But there's still a chance he can come back.
Stu: Right, of course. I mean, we could lose attention. You wouldn't want to pay attention to our broadcast.
Glenn: Yeah. Today would be that day because I'm sure there's a lot things that, you know, people are saying that, oh, wait a minute, that looked like kind of standing at the Berlin wall and speaking about communism tenderly, but I'm sure that's been covered. Let's start with McCain. Today here's headline No. 1: Bratwurst for McCain and relish, too. For McCain some GOP land lines. McCain ignored by mainstream press. Headline No. 4: John McCain's Hispanic slump. And finally, headline No. 5, did McCain back the new counterinsurgency strategy? We stop here now at the half and get some analysis of the first half.
Stu: Glenn, I would actually say that's a very positive first half for John McCain, considering I didn't think there would be any headlines written with him at all with Barack Obama being so fabulous.
Glenn: All right. We go into the second half. Here's headline No. 1 for Obama. Obama takes McCain's trip dare, leaving McCain on defensive. Obama leads with Latinos and he launches oh, good as he launches a Spanish language spot. Obama draws more than 200,000 in Berlin. Headline No. 4, Obama's speech draws praise from chancellor's office. And what must be the headline of the day, Headline No. 5, Maliki votes for Obama.
Voice: Once again, Barack Obama comes out on top, glowing headline after glowing headline. Gee. What a freaking surprise.
Glenn: That's unbelievable. Does he know he can't vote for let me go to William in Toronto. Hello, William. It's globalism day. Welcome to the program.
