When Florida's in the Balance, Scare the Elderly

Florida should be a walk in the park for the Republican candidate. But this year, McCain finds himself struggling -- even though the state has an abundance of old white and/or Jewish voters who might not be inclined to trust a young black man. So what's McCain to do? Talk about Iran and Israel. Extra fright points for releasing this on the same day that Haaretz quotes French President Nicolas Sarkozy as calling Barack Obama's Iran position "utterly immature." Jokes aside, this is a fair point of distinction for McCain to make -- especially in light of Joe Biden's recent foolish remarks. Undoubtedly Obama will call it a distraction and pundits will say McCain's being needlessly negative (and possibly racist), but the fact is Obama has no record here.
