Straight Talk


John McCain, seeking to redirect the conversation in Florida away from the economy, about which he knows nothing and has little to say, back to his perceived strength of national security decides to tell a whopper about Mitt Romney’s record. I have no particular desire to defend Romney, who’s a liar and a buffoon himself, but one would hope that McCain’s affection for such tactics might enter the media consciousness about what kind of “straight talker” he is. On that note, good for Jeffrey Toobin.
