Lindsay Graham: Since Obama Is The 'Virtual Incumbent,' He's Going To Lose

Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C. and John McCain's bosom buddy, today on CBS with Bob Schieffer:

What we've seen in the last two weeks is a very much tightening of the race in the states that matter. I really believe that Senator Obama is the virtual incumbent. And if he's not at 50 percent today in North Carolina, he's not going to win.

We see closing in Nevada, New Mexico and Colorado, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. We have him under 50 and in the margin of error. The intensity level in the last couple of weeks has been unbelievable on our side. Senator Obama is being defined for the most liberal senator in the Senate. That's his voting record. Joe the Plumber kind of put Obama policies on a real face. ...

I said in Fayetteville that I would beat Michael Phelps in swimming before Barack Obama wins North Carolina. And I can't swim.

I'm standing by that. I know North Carolina. John McCain will win North Carolina.

Yep, they're all taking up residence on Planet Bizarro. Because only there would it be possible for Republicans, who've held the White House for the past eight years, to call Obama the "virtual incumbent."

And like most of these Bizarroids, it may prove amusing if nothing else come Wednesday to compare the actual results with their predictions. I'm sure that Lindsay Graham can be faster than Michael Phelps ... on the Internet.
