They keep coming back until you decapitate them

First rule about zombies:

Matthew Delong of the Washington Independent:
The Wall Street Journal reports a familiar face is back on the campaign trail with Sen. John McCain at a stop in Aspen, Colo.:
Ousted John McCain campaign co-chairman Phil Gramm is back with the campaign’s top advisers this weekend, as the campaign gathers top supporters for a series of briefings in scenic Aspen, Colo.

The former Texas senator stepped down from his position after he said in an interview last month that the country is in a “mental recession” and that we had become a “nation of whiners.”

Gramm was seated in the front row, with other top supporters, this afternoon as McCain addressed the Aspen Institute in a “conversation” with Walter Isaacson, president of the institute and a former editor of Time magazine.

Asked what his role in the campaign is now, Gramm said in an interview, “I’m a supporter.” As for whether he continues to advise McCain, he said, “We’re friends. I haven’t stopped being his friend. If he asks me, I’d give it to him.” He added, “I’m not an official adviser.”
Maybe they think it's been long enough that we forgot about whining about losing houses and money and jobs. Maybe they think the Olympics will distract us. Maybe a few weeks off with no one to advise McBush on the economy was too long...

Not whining or anything. Just watching the train wreck.
