A NYT article goes on to note that
Several party leaders said Mr. McCain needed to settle on a single message in the final weeks of the campaign and warned that his changing day-to-day dialogue – a welter of evolving economic proposals, mixed with on-again-off-again attacks on Mr. Obama’s character – was not breaking through and was actually helping Mr. Obama in his effort to portray Mr. McCain as erratic.
It seems that the McCain campaign is wandering as aimlessly as McCain did around the stage during last week’s debate with Obama. Lucky for McCain he has Palin on the team. “We just want to make sure that in this campaign, that we uphold the standards of tolerance and truth-telling.”, she said. Too bad she hasn’t figured out how to do that yet.
