Broder is packing heat once again, firing off the "Border Bounce Award" as the Dean of Politics, known for his political savy, proclaims that McCain is the "Alpha Dog".
It was a small thing, but I counted six times that Obama began a sentence with the words that McCain was "absolutely right" about a point he had made. No McCain sentences began with a similar acknowledgement of his opponent's wisdom, even though the two agreed on Iran, Russia and the U.S. financial crisis far more than they disagreed.
It was a small thing alright, words that only a partisan hack would indulge in the "meaning of" but isn't that all that the GOP has become these days? They pick at straws and make hay out of nothing.
