It depends on the meaning of “arrival.” TPM has been tracking this too.

I’ve been reading David Foster Wallace‘s essay on the old McCain (the McCain2000, the one that mocked the Christian Right, that promised to “Always. Tell you. The Truth.”), and despite the obvious differences between McCain2000 and McCain2008, it’s worth reading if only for the author’s ruminations on trust. Is McCain a leader? Or is he a great salesman?

That question was relevant back in 2000. In the wake of McCain’s latest stunt, I wonder which category McCain falls into? Do we even have to think about it?

At this point, is McCain even a good salesman?
