McCain suspends his campaign:
McCain suspends his campaign, and asks to postpone Friday’s debate, to address the financial crisis.
Both candidates have been marginal players; McCain, though, seems to have the potential to make himself a major one, and his move is a mark, most of all, that he doesn’t like the way this campaign is going.
The real reason is probably twofold. First, he is getting pummeled in the polls.
Second, McCain’s entire campaign is composed of lobbyists, and they need to be in Washington to get their cut of the $700 billion. They can’t miss this shot at the trough.
Straight talk, bitches!
In all seriousness, I hope he has figured out how to use teh google. Google maps might come in handy, since he has not done a damned thing in DC for the last two years. He might get lost.
People are going to see right through this stunt.
