Dan Perrin lists "The Seven Reasons McCain-Palin Are a Lock to Win." Here's reason #1:

The first and foremost reason McCain-Palin will win is the absolute arrogance, elitism, condescending, patronizing and in-your-face voter suppression campaign – don’t vote for McCain, he can not win -- being conducted by the national media on Senator Obama’s behalf.

Larison calls the post "a valuable artifact of the political and intellectual cocoon of the modern GOP and mainstream conservatism.  In years to come, when strategists and pundits try to understand what happened in this election, this might serve as a key text demonstrating core Republican disbelief that they could lose."
