epitaph: they went for this...political bullshit about narratives
although peggy noonan's comment was in response to the palin selection, the same could be said about joe the plumber. you'd think that mccain would have discarded this poorly researched, dang near catastrophic illustration by now. but no, he's still prattling on about the unlicensed, tax dodging, duplicitous plumber.
for such a smart man, mccain sure is running a stupid campaign.
