The McCain Campaign Reduces Phil Gramm’s Role

Phil Gramm is a perfect example of what happens when a politician dares to speak his own mind. The former Texas senator has been all but ostracized by his friend John McCain for making an unpopular statement about the economy. Jokes about Belarus aside, it is unclear what role, if any, Gramm will have in the McCain campaign from now on, but one thing is certain: he will no longer be advising the Republican Presidential candidate on the economy.

And I think that is a shame, because Gramm appears to have a better grasp on the true state of the economy than any one else in the McCain camp.
