oh, john mccain, you got my hopes up when I heard "john mccain is suspending his campaign..."

unfortunately you're just suspending the parts that you know you're bad at, like debates. everyone sees you. just like we saw you with that sarah palin shit. and the cutting bush out of the convention shit. and the first round of debate shit, in which you tried to shape the entire process to your will.

it's like someone just said in an e-mail to jack cafferty, "now we can see who really needs the washington comfort zone." oh snap.

you thought you'd be clever, putting obama in a no win position. instead, people saw you, and are now in the process of pointing and laughing.

does w. know you borrowed his wardrobe of emperor's non-clothes? I mean, not that he'd be able to see that they were gone. lol

you people are killing me with this shit. increasingly, it seems like you're killing the whole country with it. even the media is a bit baffled by the transparent ineptitude going on here. the crack in our country between those that can your drawers and those who refuse to admit they can see your drawers even though there's no way they can't deepens.

and you've got a whole month left to go. *cues calliope music*

No way. John McCain is going to fly all superhero-like back to DC, and singlehandedly slap, scratch, and bite the economy back into its proper place.

I really hope the debate goes on Friday, as I had planned to settle down in front of the TV with a bottle of mezcal.

the funny thing, is short of explicitly listing slapping, scratching, and biting, that's the catch of the day on Fox news. he's going to single-handedly save the economy, the election, and if we're lucky, christmas.

everyone else involved in the debate says it will go on, and he's gonna kind of look like a dick if he just refuses to go, especially if he hasn't saved the economy, etc, yet. I think this little stunt backfired, especially since the immediate buzz on Fox news was "indefinitely suspend the first VP debate and push back the Pres debate into that slot," which reads... intriguingly... as an elaborate scheme to save Sarah Palin's ass.

I can't wait for the debates, especially with the situation getting increasingly crazier.

I think the poll on's front page is fairly telling. 71% think it's just a political gimmick.

But apparently this crisis supersedes any long-term planning or thought about, oh, who might be the next president. As I told [ profile] ramaba tonight, you might think, listening to McCain, that there aren't 97 other senators and 49 other governors not involved in the race for the White House that might be able to make a lightly-informed decision on this.

he's a spotlight junkie. that's why they gave obama so much shit about the celebrity thing, to make him look less like a ridiculous fame monkey. he has to be the hero!unfortunately for him, he really doesn't seem to run this shit by anyone with sense.

this whole thing is oddly depressing. like roadkill, only the bloated corpse is the last shred of McCain's integrity. it was overblown to begin with and now it's just exhausted.
