Phil Gramm Returns to McCain Fold
By Michael D. Shear
Turns out, the exile to Belarus was not permanent.
Former Sen. Phil Gramm, the lawmaker-turned-lobbyist who was unceremoniously sent to the cooler by his friend, Sen. John McCain for saying that the recession was "mental," appeared in Aspen with the GOP nominee today.
After Gramm's comments, McCain had joked that Gramm would be "in serious consideration for ambassador to Belarus although I'm not sure the citizens of Minsk would welcome that."
Gramm told reporters today that he's just a volunteer, but his presence was enough to prompt howls from Democrats.
"Heeeeeeee's back!" read the subject line of an e-mail from an Obama spokesman.
