OK so NOW that Mr. McCain went to Washington and got things all stirred up in the bailout negotiations, and threatened to take his marbles home without debating if things didn’t get handled by HIS deadline, and got lots of press for these ploys…. NOW he says “OK I’ll debate”
And we’re supposed to be oh so grateful.
He is just a big baby.
And then I see THIS ten hours BEFORE The debate happens from the Washington Post:
Barack Obama might as well go back to his suspiciously unsuspended campaign, because John McCain has already won tonight’s debate.
“McCain Wins Debate!” declares the ad which features a headshot of a smiling McCain with an American flag background. Another ad spotted by our eagle-eyed observer featured a quote from McCain campaign manager Rick Davis declaring: “McCain won the debate– hands down.”
And now we know how McCain intends to deal with the nation’s economic crisis — they’ve invented time travel.
Having come up with technology so advanced McCain can win the debate before he even announced whether he’d show up for the debate, the Republican team is ready to go on to their brilliant plan to save the nation from its current fiscal crisis.
