McCain = Dewey?

As several bloggers have already pointed out, John McCain's campaign jumped the gun by placing an ad on the Wall Street Journal's webpage that declared him the winner of Friday's presidential debate, before it even took place.



This reminded me of when the Chicago Daily Tribune similarly jumped the gun in the 1948 with its "Dewey Defeats Truman" headline.



We can only hope that the election turns out the same way for McCain as it did for Dewey in 1948.

John McCain truly resembles Kane, you know the evil minister from Poltergeist.
