McCain’s Money ‘Wisdom’

“Beltway wisdom has it that the addition of such a corporate star will remedy Mr. McCain’s fiscal flatulence.”

It’s not really funny that a political candidate knows so little about the economy — but I did have to laugh at this “turn of phrase” in Frank Rich’s column in The New York Times titled “It’s the Economic Stupidity, Stupid.” Rich goes on to write that John McCain vows to read Greenspan’s book as a tutorial and is thinking he’ll learn to get online one of these days. Oh dear. The “right” vice president won’t fix what’s wrong with McCain. Along with his lack of fiscal know-how, I can’t imagine him ever uttering a stunning sentence.
