Is John McCain Stupid?

No, that's the real title of an editorial in the Wall Street Journal today by Daniel Henninger.

The one thing -- arguably the only thing -- the McCain candidacy has going for it is a sense among voters that they don't know what Barack Obama stands for or believes. Why then would Mr. McCain give voters reason to wonder the same thing about himself? You're supposed to sow doubt about the other guy, not do it to yourself.

John, John, John, with friends like these...right? What seems to have the right all up in arms this week is that McCain isn't staying on message like a brainless automaton, like...hmm, what's his name? Wood? Tree? I know it's something arboreal.

The reason McCain achieved any popularity is because he doesn't stay on message. It's his shtick. What, you expect Bob Hope to go blue?

John, you should have switched parties four years ago when Kerry offered you an out. These people never liked you, and now you just seem like a Wooderson at the dork party, trying to beat the squares at Clue.

Hey, at least all the baby-boomer media still think you're pretty cool.
