Wouldn't You Like to be a Fundamental Too?

Gail Collin's latest article is pretty good. She notes that McCain seems to have become a populist in response to the latest Wall Street troubles. Yep. A Populist. And his commentary on how American Economic Fundamentals are strong? He means you.
It was a rather jumbled message, but the new story line was firm. The fundamentals were not things like employment rates or trade statistics. The fundamentals were the workers.

We are the fundamentals!

And, naturally, the humble, hard-working fundamentals are good. Who could doubt it? Was Barack Obama trying to say that he didn’t think the American working man and woman was good?
Yep. There it is. McCain's tap dancing on the economy needs a bit more practice.
