I missed much of the brouhaha over McCain flipping out and unilaterally suspending his campaign so he could go to Washington to
help solve exploit the financial crisis.
As we all know by now, McCain and his campaign have sunk to a breathtaking level of lies, deceit and double-talk. As a result, my bullsh*t-busting conclusion has been that McCain:
- is scared by all the bad polls out recently showing him trailing Obama;
- realizes that most of America blames
McCainRepublican-backed deregulation for the crisis and wants to toss some chum over the side to deflect the rising headlines about how complicit McCain was in deregulation; and
- has officially gone certifiably batsh*t and is two steps away from the funny farm.
McCain supporter Sen. Lindsey Graham tells CNN the McCain campaign is proposing to the Presidential Debate Commission and the Obama camp that if there's no bailout deal by Friday, the first presidential debate should take the place of the VP debate, currently scheduled for next Thursday, October 2 in St. Louis.
In this scenario, the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin would be rescheduled for a date yet to be determined, and take place in Oxford, Mississippi, currently slated to be the site of the first presidential faceoff this Friday.
Too clever by half I suspect...
