I, for one, can hardly wait

For John McCain to begin explaining his economic plans for the recession coming at the American economy like a freight train.

After all, other than having both fists in with Operation Clusterf**k and the eternal love of the beltway media, Ol’ Johnny has virtually no other tangible plan he can enunciate. His one domestic achievement, opposing some of Bush’s tax cuts is hardly going to win him any love with the base. It was, after all, less to do with policy than exacting some small, meaningless, revenge on Bush for the way he ran his 2000 campaign. After that it was nothing but the loving.

When asked to discuss economic policy McCain has stated:

“The issue of economics is not something I’ve understood as well as I should,” he said. But, “I’ve got Greenspan’s book,” he assured the audience.

I think we’re all relieved now right?

Has he read "Atlas Shrugged" yet?

How does Mr. Straight Talk plan on addressing the economy?

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, McCain’s top economic adviser, said his approach is to simply let someone else deal with the problems affecting working Americans. “The best course of action is to let the Fed handle it.”

Great, and he’ll let St. Petraeus handle his foreign policy.

Awesome, he’s morphed into Bush already.

UPDATE: Bill Kristol’s third column for the New York Times is about McCain and Peggy Noonan should sue for plagiarism. For a more offensive and surly take on this, see my profanity-laced normal blog.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
