I’m going to start us off this morning with a couple news stories that are hits to the McCain campaign. First, we have a story reporting on the fact that Alan Greenspan has called McCain’s tax cuts too expensive. As the Fed Chairman who guided us through the economic expansion of the 90s, I wonder how John McCain will try to wiggle out of this one.
Second, the Wall Street Journal reports that Sarah Palin has requested $453 million in earmarks over the past two years from the federal government for Alaska. At some point, one of her main selling points won’t be that she’ll cut pork barrel spending. At least, I hope it won’t be.
