Born-Again Supply-Sider?

Robert D. Novak writes in his piece, Born-Again Supply-Sider?:
Sen. John McCain, who echoed Teddy Kennedy on taxes when he ran for president in 2000, now sounds more like Jack Kemp as a 2008 candidate. 'I've never voted for a tax increase in 24 years,' he told me last week. 'Never, ever, not under any president including President Reagan, and I will never vote for a tax increase, nor support a tax increase.'

Later, in his second to the last paragraph:
It is difficult to measure how much transformation of McCain from taxer to tax-cutter has contributed to his fading popularity among Washington's media elite, but the romance is gone........"
