'Brazen cynicism'

Posted By on Mon, Sep 29, 2008 at 6:16 AM

That's the descriptive Brummett gives John McCain for his actions in the financial bailout. It fits in just about everything else he's done. Add some descriptives -- "erratic" and "scary" -- from Paul Krugman in the economic context.

Not too worry. The "Huckabee" show was a precursor, I now believe, of the new McCain attack line. William Kristol is now urging Sarah Palin to use Jeremiah Wright as a cudgel. For those who missed it, Huckabee's first Fox News show included a segment on Obama's former pastor.

Does Sarah Palin really want to get into a pastor throw-down?
