John McCain, screwer of the people

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Over at Slate, Daniel Gross has a good overview of McCain's "fiscal program," which he calls "either a joke or a fantasy." I'd offer a third option: an evil plot. Key passage:

Reading McCain's economic agenda and listening to his speech, it appears that the problem with the last eight years is that we haven't seen enough tax breaks for the wealthy, that economic royalism hasn't been pursued with sufficient vigor, and that the middle and working classes haven't been stiffed sufficiently.

At least he's making an effort to fit in with his party and those to whom it is beholden.
