The Suspension That Never Was…

Deep down, I knew this shit was too good to be true.

The GOP ticket is so full of empty promises- it’s enough to break a girl’s heart.

So while everyone else was busy suspending McCain’s campaign, he was busy…

Um…

Campaigning.

Naw- he didn’t actually hightail it to Washington to steer the Senate masses in the right direction so as to pass this economic bailout thing.

I know, I know- that’s what he said he was going to do… but… well…

He didn’t.

He was much too busy for any of that bailout nonsense- I mean, he has a suspended campaign to run!

And what he was unable to accomplish… you know… since his campaign was suspended and all…

He delegated to his talking heads.

Tucker Bounds and Nicolle Wallace found time- overcoming the broken heart I’m certain a suspended campaign might cause- to hang out at MSNBC…

Now to an untrained eye, it may have looked like they were continuing to campaign… but I know that can’t possibly be the case… because the campaign has actually been suspended…

Right?

Right.

The great Senator had to get to Washington right away to help Congress save the world by way of bailing out the financial sector…

Or not.

You see, McCain was actually AWOL as of 10 AM this morning, while the rest of Congress was busy ironing out a bailout plan that taxpayers may just be able to survive.

Um… Why wasn’t he there, you ask?

Perhaps it’s because he was kinda busy campaigning (ohhhh what a dirty word, when one has sworn to cease campaigning) at the Clinton Global Initiative.

Wow.

For those who may be curious, There isn’t actually any economic bailout talking- or voting- occuring there.

If I didn’t know better, I’d be suspicious, thinking maybe McCain didn’t suspend that daggone campaign after all!

He also managed to make a little time to talk to Katie Couric– no, not about the bailout he’s so hell bent on suspending shit over- but rather…  

… His campaign.

He was, however, much too busy to come through for David Letterman, as scheduled…

Or to commit to participating in the debates on Friday… and he really kinda thinks it’s necessary to reschedule the VP debates too, while we’re at it.

Sigh.

Perhaps I’m being a bit unfair.

He did manage to show up in Washington today around 4PM, just in time for the hand-holding, peace-pipe smoking photo op session with George Bush.

Only in America…

… Do people actually buy into this shit.

Implosion, Spontaneous Combustion and John McCain

This man is about to implode…

Spontaneously combust…

Boom!

Now McCain wants to postpone the VP Debates in addition to the Presidential Debates.

He’s lost his ever-loving mind.

That’s what this “I need to suspend my campaign to put country first” bullshit was all about…

As noted in yesterday’s post, this man couldn’t care less about the economy.

Something else entirely was going on.

He needed an excuse to avoid getting killed by Obama in the presidential debates on Friday… and more importantly needed a way to get Palin out of having to debate Biden.

We all knew he would have chewed her lipstick wearin’ ass up and spit her right back out again.

Are people actually falling for this?

I wonder if there are millions of people sitting there, coffee in hand, as I’m typing this, thinking, “Aww… that John McCain! What a sweetheart, postponing something so damn important to this very election- which is in 40 days by the way- I think I’ll vote for him!”

Lord help me.

I certainly hope people are not actually falling for this ridiculously obvious and transparent ploy.

He can’t get his campaign or his party under control… the majority of Americans are blaming the GOP for this economic mess we’re finding ourselves in… blaming the GOP for the bailout…

His own so-called supporters aren’t doing the best job supporting him or his running mate either…

Hell, Laura Bush told the press yesterday that Sarah Palin didn’t have enough foreign policy experience… but no worries… she’s a quick learner.

Oh Ok.

Well in that case…

Whatever.

McCain, for his part, says he’s trying to rescue the economy right now, not the campaign.

Well, he needs to rescue both.

Or try to anyway.

This girl can’t help but giggle.

Depression, Captains and Multi-Tasking

McCain has announced that he will be suspending his campaign to concentrate solely on the economy.

He wants Obama to put his campaign on hold too- and has asked that Friday’s presidential debates be cancelled.

Obama’s cool taking the partisan route with McCain, and coming up with an economic plan-of-action… in fact, it was Obama’s idea to try and work with McCain on this train-wreck to begin with… but…

Cancel the debates?

Suspend his campaign?

I don’t think so.

As Obama rightly pointed out, Presidents have to be able to multi-task.

He feels completely capable of continuing his campaign, debating McCain on Friday as planned, and working on a solution to this looming economic crisis… all at the same time.

Quite frankly, if you can’t pull off a debate a mere 41 days before people are going to have to decide whether to vote for your ass or not and still manage to work on an economic package that Congress will actually pass…

… Then what are you doing running for Prez to begin with?

This country has all kinds of shit going on at any given moment… two wars to fight, economic issues, poverty issues, rebuilding from natural disaster issues, racial issues, environmental issues, unemployment issues, abortion issues, womens’ rights issues, gay rights issues, immigration issues, health care issues…

See?

All kinds of stuff.

Obama’s right- it’s imperative to go forward with the debates… we need to hear from the guys who are hoping to become the captain of this fubar ship.

If MSNBC’s most recent poll is any indication, 69.1% of my fellow Americans agree.

McCain is simply in panic mode.

He’s in big trouble, Obama’s whuppin’ him in the polls- again- and he knows he’s got nothing- absolutely nothing- to bring to the table anymore.

As Ben Smith so aptly noted, McCain’s just unhappy about the direction his campaign is headed… “the only thing that’s changed in the last 48 hours is the public polling.”

Senator McCain admitted yesterday that he hasn’t even bothered to read the bailout proposal…

Uh oh.

I think maybe he ought to puruse that sucker…

Since he’s suspending his campaign on account of it and all.

Just sayin’.

… But…

We’re to believe that this same man…

Who doesn’t even find the bailout proposal important enough to read through (let’s face it- regardless of how this thing turns out, he won’t be losing any of his 7 homes, 13 cars or five-hundred-and-some-odd-dollar shoes) really wants to suspend his campaign and put “country first” so he can help hammer out this economic plan?

Right.

What’s that line the dems like to say?

Something about, “If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge in Alaska I’d like to sell you…”

Exactly.

We all know what’s really goin’ on.

You see- unlike Sarah Palin- who thinks if this bailout doesn’t pass we’re at risk for another Great Depression

We aren’t stupid.

FDIC anyone?

The economic crisis has provided McCain the perfect excuse to do what he really wanted to all along…

Abort mission.

Jump ship.

Take his ball and go home.

McCain just doesn’t want to play anymore.

Good riddance Maverick-Man.
