It Has To Make Sense Before You Can Call It Sleazy

IT HAS TO MAKE SENSE BEFORE YOU CAN CALL IT SLEAZY....Joe Klein calls this John McCain's "sleaziest smear," but I'm just plain mystified. What is this supposed to mean:

My friends, this is the problem in Washington. People like Senator Obama have been too busy gaming the system and haven't ever done a thing to challenge the system. That isn't country first, that's Obama first.

Obama has been gaming the system? Huh? Is McCain just letting the Attack-otron 3000 put together random words for him and then delivering them without bothering to see if they make sense or not? He's been all over the map for the past week.
