Brody sez


David Brody claims to have the scoop on John McCain’s outreach to evangelicals. The idea, it seems, is to put together a “committee of 50”–old and new style evangelicals but not the headliners who have no use for the Arizona senator. Brody’s source talked about this in the future tense–what the campaign will be doing to put this list together. Forgive me, but it seems awfully late in the day to be getting around to this for a guy who’s been a major GOP presidential aspirant for, oh, a couple of years or so. I’m not saying it’s necessarily too late to do so. But this should have been put into place a year ago, when McCain was flush with money and showed every sign of being on his way to where he is now.
