* Gail Collins: today McCain is a “vegetarian”

Posted by Lew Weinstein on September 18, 2008

Gail Collins writes in today’s NYT …

  • Nobody had warned them that he had just morphed into a new persona — a raging populist demanding more regulation of the nation’s financial system.

LMW:  John McCain, for 26 years until yesterday, has described himself, proudly and accurately, as a “deregulator.” The Republican party, from Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush, with John McCain’s strong support, has systematically dismantled the network of financial regulations which would have prevented the recent meltdown. 

  • And since McCain’s willingness to make speeches that have nothing to do with his actual beliefs is not matched by an ability to give them, he wound up sounding like Bob Dole impersonating Huey Long.
  • Really, if McCain is going to keep changing into new people, the campaign should send out notices. (Come to a rally for the next president of the United States. Today he’s a vegetarian!)
