Developing Story ... McCain Camp May Have Candidate's Mother Fall Ill

Can't Allow Obama To Gain Family Value Advantage; McCain May Suspend Campaign, Monitor Mother By Phone

Sources tell The Garlic that the inner circle of the McCain Campaign is weighing asking the candidates mother to become ill, so they can match the actions of their Democratic opponent, who is leaving the campaign trail on Thursday for Hawaii, to visit his seriously ailing grandmother.

According to the Chicago Tribune, "Barack Obama will suspend his presidential campaign for part of two days this week to return to his native Hawaii to be at the side of his gravely ill grandmother, a campaign aide said Monday."

Madelyn Dunham, 85, was released from a hospital late last week and returned to her home in Honolulu with a health condition the aide described as "very serious."

Obama's decision to cancel campaign events "underscores the seriousness of the situation," senior aide Robert Gibbs told reporters during an evening flight after a campaign event in Orlando.

As the Illinois Democrat recounted in his memoirs, Dunham, his maternal grandmother, acted in many ways as a surrogate parent.

The plan, which may come over the next day, or two, will come on a moments notice, when John McCain will announce that he is suspending his campaign once again, to rush off to visit his ill mother.

"We can't allow Obama to have an upper hand, with a Family Value issue, this close to the election.", it was reported Campaign Manager Rick Davis barked.

Davis also was said to have told his staff that a PR campaign, including robo-calls, will be mounted, noting that Obama hasn't apologized or repudiated his grandmother's illness, which amounts to his smearing McCain's ill mother.

"He wants to spread around sickness and illness, along with all that wealth he's going to steal from people like Joe the Plumber", will be included in the robo-calls.

The illness of the elder Mrs. McCain will not be disclosed, and the campaign is in the process of lining up another interview with Katie Couric, that the Senator will detour to, before leaving for Arizona, to be with his ailing mother.

No word if a second interview, or talk show appearance will be set, so that he can blow that off for the Couric interview.

Once in Arizona, staffers have told The Garlic source, McCain will use the same successful strategy he employed in solving the Wall Street Meltdown Rescue Package, and closely monitor his mother's condition via telephone.

He will then emerge from the second campaign suspension, declaring that he cured his mother, with a deregulated, private healthcare plan, and accuse Obama, and some of the doctors and medical staff, of wanting to let her die.

McCain's running mate, Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, will stay on the campaign trail, and add to her stump speech that Obama is "pallin' around with doctors who would rather let their patients die, then allow them the freedom of choosing their own, private healthcare plan."
