McCain Meets You-Tube
Link and commentary on the dissipation of McCain's "brand" via Newshoggers: no-take-backs-on the soul-selling.html
The larger point being, IMHO, that John McCain's campaign needs to learn that this thing called "the internet" exists, and that things you said (rather forcefully, I might add) on TV can be found and re-aired. So it's less easy to rely on the short-term memory of the voters and just call your opponent a liar than it used to be. Especially where the videotape exists.
