Leaked Obama Internals Show Him Within Margin in Pennsyvania?

So says a Koz Kid.

Apparently, Obama's internals were leaked to a radio talk show host in Scranton. they show Obama up by only 2 in PA.

Steve Corbett, a radio talk show host in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, accidentally received a copy of an internal email sent by Grant Olin who heads the Wilkes-Barre headquarters of the Obama campaign. The email went to 627 Obama campaign volunteers in the Wilkes-Barre Scranton region, saying that Obama Headquarters reported an internal poll which shows that Obama is only 2 points up in Pennsylvania.

Sean Smith, who is heading Obama’s Pennsylvania campaign, was interviewed by Steve Corbett via phone at 5:35 today to discuss this. He said that Grant "went rogue", and aknowledged that Grant was "reprimanded" for this.

...

This is important because, if it is true, it undermines the argument that we have a substantial partyId advantage this year.

A partyId of at least +6 this year seems reasonable, as many pollsters are showing. Many rightwingers are arguing that the breakdown should be a push, like 2004, which is ridiculous. However the rumor of +2 in PA reinforces their argument. And that's the last hope they have left.

We need to get on this story as soon as possible before it spreads any further. I don't want them to have any hope left, Let's crush their spirits!

Here's the audio.

McCain is meanwhile fighting for Pennsylvania despite all polls showing him losing there, and I think that makes sense. For one thing, Western Pennsylvania is teeming with redneck racists, according to John Murtha.

That's snarky but it is true that Pennsylvania has been repeatedly insulted by Obama and his surrogates as clingy, bitter, and racist. We need to pick up at least one blue state to win, most likely, and I don't see a better chance of a pick-up -- even if the chances aren't great.
