Right on the Button

Speechwriters for McCain

Obama speechwriter (and prospective Judson Welliver Society member) Wendy Button has quit the campaign and announced that she's supporting McCain.

I can no longer justify what this party has done and can’t dismiss the treatment of women and working people as just part of the new kind of politics. It’s wrong and someone has to say that. And also say that the Democratic Party’s talking points—that Senator John McCain is just four more years of the same and that he’s President Bush—are now just hooker lines that fit a very effective and perhaps wave-winning political argument…doesn’t mean they’re true. After all, he is the only one who’s worked in a bipartisan way on big challenges.

Is this perhaps a straight player trade for Chris Buckley?

Button's rationale strikes me as a lot more convincing than Buckley's (also published on The Daily Beast).

Guess they'll have to find somebody else to write Obama's hooker lines.
