McCain Forgives Gramm For Calling America "Nation Of Whiners"
Conservative columnist Robert Novak reports today that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and former Sen. Phil Gramm, R-Texas, have patched things up since Gramm made his clunky comments about the U.S. being "sort of...a nation of whiners," and in a "mental recession."

<snip>

Earlier this week, I asked Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., chair of the House Financial Services Committee, what his take was on Gramm's comments.

"That's who he is," Frank said. "And John McCain supported him for president. Obama never supported Jeremiah Wright for president. John McCain supported Phil Gramm for president, he's a major influence on McCain. This is a mean guy, who thinks if you're poor it's your own fault, and has also been a contributor to the regulatory problem. He's the scariest part of John McCain and I think that it's very helpful that people know about it."

They are all cut from the same bolt of cloth. Every freakin' one of them.

2. Good! We need Dr. Phil
The more, the better.

Unless of course, the campaign gives he and McCain a pass- and takes the high road loser road...

4. Oh, how sweet: they've patched things up.
No problem, just so long as the electorate doesn't forgive McCain for forgiving Graham.
