The conservative, Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal ripped McCain some new holes in an editorial today. Here are some excerpts.
“John McCain has made it clear this week he doesn’t understand what’s happening on Wall Street”
“But this assault on Mr. Cox is both false and deeply unfair.”
“Mr. McCain is sounding like a candidate searching for a political foil rather than a genuine solution. He’ll never beat Mr. Obama by running as an angry populist…”
“It’s also un-Presidential.”
With their nominee getting both direct and unintended poundings by conservatives like the WSJ, Fiorina, Rothschild, and Gramm, not to mention the mounting gaffes by McCain and Palin, the Republican party increasingly appears to be a ship without a rudder. Or perhaps a better analogy given the candidate: an aging fighter plane full of holes in a tailspin, nosediving to the ground. Maybe one with propellers.
