Has McCain lost Cokie Roberts?

This roundtable discussion among some of what Calvin Trillin lovingly refers to as “the Sabbath Gasbags” takes on McCain’s week wrestling with the economy – and losing.

It isn’t pretty.

Will: McCain substituted “vehemence for coherence,” and engaged in “un-Presidential” behavior (for wanting to fire SEC Chairman Christopher Cox).

Donaldson: “The question of age is back on the table.”

Roberts: “[With] the Obama advisors…you do feel a sense of security.”

Remember – these are folks who McCain used to joke were his base.

Used to.
