Down to the Wire

Yesterday, Sarah Palin said that this election is going to “come down to the wire.” She may have meant it’s going to be close. But she also may have been suggesting that this election rests in the hands of the hit HBO series.

If so, McCain’s screwed:

Castof “The Wire” Campaigns in North Carolina  for Obama

Stars Will Make Stopsin Raleigh Sunday and UNC Chapel Hill and Duke on Monday

RALEIGH—Tomorrow, members of the cast of the Peabody Award-winning drama series, TheWire will attend a Backyard Brunch for Barack in Raleigh.  Seven ofthe show’s cast members will visit the Tarheel State in support of thechange Barack Obama will bring across the country and in North Carolina.

Look for the attack ads citing Obama’s shady drug-dealer connections. Some members of the cast also went knocking on doors, which obviously means kicking them down. On a side note, Akkinagbe, who plays Chris Partlow, confirms via a friend that Season 4 is “definitely the best one.”

John McCain wants it to be one way. But it’s the other way .
