Dusty Springfield - You don't have to say you love me
Well, that was special, wasn't it?
Stumblin' Bumblin John McCain calls off his Mighty Mouse ("Here I come to save the day!"), "My sister-My daughter" campaign suspension and is rolling down to Ole' Miss for the debate this evening.
Hard pressed to come up with a good example of when a national-stage politician has so thoroughly embarrassed him or herself (excluding his running mate).
By virtually all accounts (excepting of course, his own staff), he was utterly useless, and his ploy was seen for what it was - big-time grandstanding, putting not his bank-slogan "Country First" up front, but, rather, his flailing, dying campaign (or, by a good number of people, it was done to cover-up the dreadful Katie Couric - Sarah Palin interview; If he's going to start covering up for her, he's going to have to light his hair on fire nearly everyday).
So, not sure what that means for the country.
He's still watching over us? ... He doesn't care anymore? ... It will still be a deal, but just not his?
Anyway, here's a good sample of the vibe going down ....
NO METHOD, JUST MADNESS...
Ex-Adviser: McCain "Blinked," Campaign "Governed By Tactics, Not Ideology"
John McCain Blinks
McCain's flailing panic
And the Rove Rats even had the nerve to jump the gun, putting this up this morning - Check this out!
I'm intending (hoping) to get another post up late this evening, with, at minimum, first riffs on the debate.
- Will Mr. Economy snap at Obama, with an angry something (not the "N" word, but, perhaps a "son" or "boy")?
- While we listen to Obama answering a question, we hear a "thud", the camera cutting over to Stumblin' Bumblin' Johnny, who has fallen asleep at the podium?
After the debate, Stumblin' Bumblin Johnny will still have some hard choices to make.
Does he don his Mighty Mouse suit, whether or not he suspends his campaign again (wink, wink), and fly back to Washington?
Or does he huddle with the Rove Rats, and they begin tossing out new diversions, reasons, for keeping Sarah Palin away from her debate, next week?
