New (But Not Improved) (UPDATED)

First read this:

Three weeks before Election Day, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Monday is unveiling what his aides call a more forceful new stump speech in which he portrays himself as a scrappy fighter on the comeback trail against an opponent who’s already “measuring the drapes” in the Oval Office.

[Emphasis added]

Then read this:

Despite signals that Senator John McCain would have new prescriptions for the economic crisis after a weekend of meetings, his campaign said Sunday that Mr. McCain, the Republican presidential nominee, would not have any more proposals this week unless developments call for some.

[Emphasis added]

So John McCain won’t will be debuting any new policies, but he has a shiny new stump speech! That should fix everything, right??

Is this farce of a campaign over yet?

UPDATE: Meanwhile, today Barack Obama unveiled an economic rescue plan for the middle class.

UPDATE II: And contradicting what he said earlier, John McCain will unveil a new economic plan…tomorrow.  Senator Johnny-Come-Lately?
