First, as aside: There are LOTS of brilliant pieces on today’s page. Phil, Jim, Shawn, Prowler, Jim B…. congratulations. Now, as for Jennifer’s astute and absolutely on-target blog just below here about McEconomics, there IS one area of economics where McCain — whose domestic policies on the whole are all almost entirely emoted rather than thought out, because logically, there is almost no coherence to them whatsoever — just flat-out flunks every conservative test. That area is regulation. As I put it in my column last week, if it moves, McMean wants to regulate it. It is a terrible, terrible weakness. Frankly, I was surprised that Jack Kemp endorsed him — a significant endorsement, to be sure — both because of McAmnesty’s opposition to the Bush tax cuts and especially because of McNasty’s fondness for a regulatory state that Kemp, to his credit, always opposed. For that matter, where does McAngry stand on monetary policy? Kemp is well known as a gold bug. Is McCain? If he’s not, then that is another reason why Kemp’s endorsement would seem McInane….

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
