IT'S OCTOBER!....The Washington Post has this year's least surprising story:

Sen. John McCain and his Republican allies are readying a newly aggressive assault on Sen. Barack Obama's character, believing that to win in November they must shift the conversation back to questions about the Democrat's judgment, honesty and personal associations, several top Republicans said.

Golly. Who could have predicted that a Republican presidential campaign would go down this road when October rolled around?
