More McCain Campaign Follies

Radley Balko caught yet another pre-debate screwup from the McCain campaign. You may remember that before the first McCain/Obama debate, the McCain campaign had already bought an ad with a direct quote from Rick Davis saying “McCain won the debate– hands down.” Looks like they did it again for the vice presidential debate, prematurely putting out an unfinished ad on the Washington Post website that included a direct quote from “Famous Person.” Who that famous person was to be was apparently undecided, but they knew that that famous person was going to say:
