McCain Promises To Shake Up Washington By Keeping Everything The Same

Wow, he’s not even president yet, and already he’s come out in favor of cloning:

When Gov. Sarah Palin flew home to Alaska for the first time since being named the Republican vice presidential nominee, she brought along at least half a dozen new advisers to conduct briefings, stage-manage her first television interview and help her prepare for a critical debate next month.

And virtually every member of the team shared a common credential: years of service to President Bush.

From Mark Wallace, a Bush appointee to the United Nations, to Tucker Eskew, who ran strategic communications for the Bush White House, to Greg Jenkins, who served as the deputy assistant to Bush in his first term and was executive director of the 2004 inauguration, Palin was surrounded on the trip home by operatives deeply rooted in the Bush administration.

The clutch of Bush veterans helping to coach Palin reflects a larger reality about Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign: Far from being a group of outsiders to the Republican Party power structure, it is now run largely by skilled operatives who learned their crafts in successive Bush campaigns and various jobs across the Bush government over the past eight years.

Now that’s lack of change you can believe in.  Is “fauxverick” a word?

Monday Media Blogging – Sudden Realization Edition

First they “reformed” FISA, then they nationalized AIG, Fannie and Freddie Mae.  You know what that means: The Bush administration is now Big Brother and The Holding Company.
