How Out Of It Is John McCain?

The latest sign of disturbing detachment from what's actually happening in his campaign - or just a gaffe? Here's the quote:

"The fact is that she's coming out in the next couple of days with interviews with numerous people. She's very well versed at that, she's been a governor ... She'll be doing a lot of conversations with the media, but we wanted to touch base with the American people first."

Who apart from total toady, Charlie Gibson, whose performance in the ABC News debate was a disgrace to serious journalism? Who?

And does the McCain campaign think the readers of blogs and newspapers are not the American people?
