Obama's tin ear
I think Obama has blown any chance he might have had to win the election with a single ill-chosen word, which is revealed in my latest guest-post at HughHewitt.com.

This is just so wrong!
Met at [his Senate office] door by a few reporters, [Barack Obama] answered a key question — at least for his generation.
"Stones," Obama replied.
(Hyperlinks mine.) I would have thought this was something on which, during this time of crisis, we could get cross-generational, bipartisan agreement. But Sen. Obama disappoints, yet again.
Other weblog posts, if any, whose authors have linked to Obama's tin ear and sent a trackback ping are listed here:
I would have said Beatles myself, but the Stones are probably the more politically astute answer. Afterall, the Stones are still around, making records, putting on concerts, etc. The Beatles, as wonderful as they were, broke up nearly 40 years ago.
But at least he didn’t say “Who? I prefer ABBA,” which would have been John McCain’s response.
