"The Empty Talk Express"

Reed Hundt offers a well-document case against John McCain, centered around this thesis:

John McCain is setting a remarkable record: he is the major party Presidential nominee with the skimpiest policy platform since Warren Harding or perhaps Calvin Coolidge. He's making George Bush's year 2000 policy work look encyclopedic by comparison.


The large truth well-known to mainstream media in Washington and to the candidate's colleagues is that John McCain has a well-established record of intemperate opinions, inadequately thought-through positions, and ill-considered views.

Hundt focuses mostly on McCain's views, or more accurately, the lack of them, in the areas of high tech, telecommunications, and alternative energy. Well worth reading.
