Sink: McCain lives in cabbage patch



Democratic CFO Alex Sink blasted John McCain over the economy in a conference call with reporters today, seizing on his "the fundamentals are strong" comment Monday: "I just had to ask myself which cabbage patch he's been living in, because anybody who's out there talking to real people and looking at statistics and numbers like I like to do knows that the fundamentals of our economy are in trouble. ... We can't have another president who is so incredibly out of touch with what's going on in real America.''

And Sink's take on McCain's promise Tuesday of tougher regulation and reform of Wall Street? "John McCain has been in Washington for 26 years. Where has he been and what has he been doing? It's a little late, isn't it?"
