david brooks says this, with regard to mccain:
Eventually good and honest candidates get rewarded no matter how badly outspent they are, no matter how few consultants they have.
i don't see how you could possibly draw this conclusion. i have a lot of respect for mccain. but he was killed by bush, who besmirched him with with filth, in 2000. when was the last time the dems nominated a "good and honest" candidate? i guess when they nominated bill bradley. or paul tsongas. sometimes our boy's faith in democracy takes on the quality of sheer hallucination.
