The McCain Stunt Meter

As we have pointed out in previous posts, the McCain campaign has a penchant for gimmickry whenever it hits a rough patch (a frequent occurrence lately). We are not alone in noticing this phenomenon. The ever-resourceful and brilliant Nate Silver at has not only noticed, but he has produced this insightful and entertaining 'stunt meter'.  

The stunt meter is funny and yet it's a bit scary in its implications. We just hope Nate doesn't get into copyright trouble with the geniuses at the Department of Homeland Security. You will recall their color-coded security alert chart (offered with absolute seriousness) which the McCain Stunt Meter closely resembles.

What will we do for cheap entertainment when the current in-charge crowd is booted out on November 4th?
