Late to this one, but this sentence, in David Brooks’ John McCain column a few days ago caused me to do, as they used to say in the biz, a full stop:
McCain started his general-election campaign in poverty-stricken areas of the South and Midwest. He went through towns where most Republicans fear to tread and said things most wouldn’t say.
Um, where exactly are these anti-GOP Southern and Midwestern towns again? Does he mean Southern and Midwestern Massachusetts?
