Jackie Calmes, who I think had been working on a profile of John Weaver prior to the McCain meltdown, pulls together a lot of information and anecdotes into this WSJ story. Cue violins.
She also reports this: “Tomorrow, the press-communications team is planning to resign, people familiar with the matter say.”
I’ve heard the same thing. The whole press shop — almost all of whom are Terry Nelson gets — is likely headed to NH tonight for one final hurrah before taking leave. They started out Bushies but, staffers say, they became fierce McCain advocates. My suspicion is that they still believe in McCain, but that the chaos that erupted after Weaver and Nelson’s abrupt resignations puts them in an impossible position.
UPDATE: A member of the comm team writes to say that Calmes’ report is “premature.”
