Conservative media: "McCain loses his head"..."behaving like a flustered rookie"..."unpresidential"

McCain flails

Conservative media highlight the temperament and ineptitude of John McCain.
Wall Street Journal: "John McCain has made it clear this week he doesn't understand what's happening on Wall Street...In a crisis, voters want steady, calm leadership, not easy, misleading answers that will do nothing to help. Mr. McCain is sounding like a candidate searching for a political foil rather than a genuine solution."

George Will (Washington Post): "...McCain, because of his boiling moralism and bottomless reservoir of certitudes, is not suited to the presidency. ...McCain's smear -- that Cox "betrayed the public's trust" -- is a harbinger of a McCain presidency. For McCain, politics is always operatic, pitting people who agree with him against those who are "corrupt" or "betray the public's trust," two categories that seem to be exhaustive -- there are no other people."
McCain is dumb, reactionary and simple. As George Will pointed out, inexperience can be corrected, "a dismaying temperament" can not.
