McCain Surrogates Taking Out Obama Supporters?

You have to go see Jon Swift to get the low down on this one. I do have to agree,
Calling voters whiners and running over the opposition's supporters with a Corvette might have worked in previous elections, but I don't think they are going to work in this one. Using such old-fashioned campaign tactics just reinforces the idea that McCain is past his prime and that he is still fighting the last war instead of formulating a vision for the future. And using men like Phil Gramm and Robert Novak, one of the few working journalists who is actually older than McCain, though only by a few years, as surrogates just reinforces the idea that a bunch of old men are trying to help McCain get elected.

That's your taste, go have a meal.
