Tomasky Speaks

The headline:

Does being a jerk work?

John McCain is a liar and flip-flopper and panderer and bully and whiner. And it seems to be working

The lede:

When people start running to be president, we learn new things about them. The amount and intensity of exposure – the fact that suddenly we are subjected to their thinking on every conceivable issue and non-issue – makes this inevitable. As a result of this our opinions change. We either like them more or less than at the beginning, but rarely in just the same measure.

I've been surprised at how much less I like John McCain than I did a year ago.

The rest.
