Obama Gets Sarcastic

Slate's Dickerson points out a tone shift that I'd been meaning to comment on: after months of McCain being the sarcastic candidate in the race, Obama has begun to challenge him for that mantle. (And now McCain, in turn, is trying to be the "change" candidate.)

And why shouldn't he be? Recent political history suggests that sarcasm works.
