In Good Company
I'd been waiting for someone to bring up the dreaded "B.D." words.
Adam Nagourney of the New York Times, who's part of John McCain's press corps, just did it:
"These days, Mr. McCain sounds less like his old self than Bob Dole, another Republican senator who ran for president in 1996, sounded in the closing days of his campaign — speaking louder or repeating statements that he thinks might be overlooked. 'The American economy is in a crisis!' Mr. McCain said. 'It’s in a crisis!'"
And we all know how that ended for Dole.
Anyone feel like speculating on which slightly embarrassing prescription drug McCain will wind up hawking on television?
