The wheels seem to be coming off the Straight Talk Express, according to NBC News.

On the other hand, flooding the airwaves and Internet with lies seems to be the main strategy from the McCain-Palin camp.

UPDATE: Paul Begala, great Texan that he is, makes an important point this morning on CNN about the, sigh, media's complicity in allowing McCain and Palin to repeatedly lie to the public. Begala is right: the facts should matter. As a journalist, I'm legitimately torn about the media's role during a political campaign. I'm not sure if we're supposed to be refs or judges. The issue is more complicated, to me, than TNC would have you believe.
