McCain Mines McKinley Mojo

On to Buffalo! mckinley-uplifted.jpg

William McKinley’s last use in a contemporary campaign was Karl Rove’s mad scheme to present George W. Bush as the Big Mc of our generation, achieving solid Republican rule by persuading the scruffies to vote against their interests.

It worked with Bush, at least as far as the minstrel show 2000 campaign. It might again, but seems twice-musty for the already age-inflicted John McCain. The fighting Arizonan made the comparison anyway to USATODAY, dismissing Barack Obama as the new boy orator:

“If it was simply style, William Jennings Bryan would have been president.”
