Must Patronize Voters!
Econ PhD and former senator Phil Graham's gaffe where he stated that America is full of a bunch of whiners was immediately retracted by McCain, because the last thing a Presidential candidate can say is that those voting for him are anything but suffering, which is modernity's primary virtue. I posted on whiners last week, and I think not all whining is bad. But most is. McCain is losing badly anyway, so he might as well say something unconventional. He could have picked up some votes if he said 'it's true, real GDP/capita is at a historic high in the history of mankind, and because housing prices have fallen from their historic highs, you would think we've been hit with the most grievous afflictions since God pwned Job. Man up.'
