Growing Concerns About the Yglesias Family

Aspen's finest political reporter notes on the McCain campaign shakeup: "In the year and a half since McCain and Schmidt first got to know each other, the two have grown close, almost like father and son; each very deferential to the other." Is that how fathers and sons normally interact? I feel like it doesn't describe my relationship with my dad very well.

In a larger sense, having one of the main architects of Bush's re-election campaign become McCain's campaign manager seems like a good way to demonstrate that a vote for McCain is like a vote for a third Bush term.
