John McCain’s World

JOHN McCAIN’S WORLD….When it comes to the Iraq war, John McCain’s basic policy is “Just like Bush, but even crazier!” (LA Times rundown here.) Now Robert Gordon and James Kvaal have gone where weaker men fear to tread, taking a close look at McCain’s economic policy for the Center for American Progress. Guess what? It’s just like Bush, but even crazier. If you like tax cuts for the rich, though, he’s your guy.

I know, I know. We’re not supposed to take this stuff seriously. McCain doesn’t really “do” domestic policy, you see. But he is running for president, after all, so maybe it’s worth a quick look just for giggles.
