Walter Shapiro discusses the notion that some are getting Obama fatigue:
The nonpartisan Pew Research Center for the People & the Press diagnosed a new malady Wednesday -- "Obama Fatigue." That was the headline on a national survey conducted late last week that discovered that 48 percent of all voters and, tellingly, 51 percent of independents feel they have been "hearing too much" about Barack Obama. In contrast, only 10 percent of voters say they have been "hearing too little" about the de facto Democratic nominee...More voters (38 percent) complain that they have been hearing "too little" about John McCain than "too much" (26 percent).

I basically agree - we have been hearing too little about McCain. Problem is, that's just the way he wants it. So who's to blame?
There may be a political downside to Obama's charisma that has nothing to do with snarky McCain TV spots linking him to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. The issue is not foreign-policy experience, since by any objective standard Obama has made fewer slip-ups during the campaign than McCain. But there comes in politics a moment where what was once exhilarating (a presidential nominee who is the hopeful embodiment of 21st century America) becomes predictable and commonplace.

Oh, it's Obama's fault.

This country is rather pathetic if they can't handle a campaign for the nation's most important job in times such as these. Quit yer bitchin', folks.
