Phil Gramm Back and Again Dissing Us as 'Whiners'

Did anyone truly believe that Phil Gramm was out of the McCain campaign for more than a millisecond? Well, he's baaack.

Speaking to a group of McCain supporters at the RNC, he said the following, basically suggesting that anyone who doesn't support McCain is a whiner and economically illiterate.

"If you're sitting here today, you're not economically illiterate and you're not a whiner, so I'm not worried about who you're going to vote for,'' Gramm said.

Here's the Obama campaign's response:
"Today, the man who wrote John McCain's economic plan further insulted struggling Americans by suggesting that if they are not attending the Republican Convention, they are not only whiners, but economically illiterate," said Obama's cub spokesman Tommy Vietor. "From the campaign whose candidate has said that we've made 'great progress' economically under George Bush and believes that the fundamentals of our economy are 'strong', that's pretty rich."
