First, first, first, first.
The place McCain will not get in the election.
i really, truly hope so.
also, i think....i think this man is the voice of reason for america. given to us by the celto-scottish gods.
born from a bagpipe.
I'm sorry, but i can't help but disagree.
Mccain leaving the campaign trail tells me he takes this seriously - and helps to debunk the notion that the economy is in serious trouble, as the Obama campaign has been implying since the "Housing" gaffe.
It may harm him some.
But I don't care - He's doing the right thing.
What will REALLY hurt him is if the "Anti-Pork" "Maverick" signs the bail out. (Which, unless I'm mistaken, is the biggest fiscal expense the government has ever enacted, if it passes - though, admittedly, i haven't fact-checked that.)
Slight Add-On: Attempting to cancel the debate IS Bullshit, though. I'm Just referring to him leaving the campaign trail to head to DC where he may (Or may not) be needed.
I'm confused by one part there: "helps to debunk the notion that the economy is in serious trouble".
McCain went from saying the economy was fine and dandy a week ago to saying we are all DOOMED if this thing isn't passed in two days. His rhetoric now makes Obama look optimistic. How can he be debunking that notion then?
Like Craig said, it'd be one thing if he said "I'm taking a few days off to work on this" (which wasn't needed or requested), but its another to say, "I want my opponent to suspend his campaign while I run around meeting campaign donors and doing news shows, and by the way, Palin's not going to show up for the debate and I might not either."
Sorry. I phrased that a little wrong - Defuse the accusations that he thinks everything is all hunky-dory.
HURF BLURF DUH
^^ this is true. I frequent a couple of message boards for my favorite NFL team - usually a hotbed for "Barack Hussein Osama" jokes, about as close to Freep as you could get without the real thing - and even on those boards they're shaking their heads over McCain's support for the bailout, and for suspending the campaign and ditching on the debates, and Palin's drool-mouthed idiocy. There are still a couple of hard-cores left, but (in a very unscientific way, I admit) you can almost see McCain's base evaporating by the day.
So, Professor Chaos, speaking from 2010--how does it feel to be a complete fucking drool-mouthed moron? NOT GOOD I EXPECT!
About TARP ... if you want to see how it's doing, go to this link:
As of the latest TARP report (June 18 2013), just shy of 0 billion was disbursed, and a little over 7 billion has been recouped through repayments, investments, and the like.
Every reputable economist agrees that TARP kept the economy from completely melting down, Great Depression style, and in the end TARP will likely turn a profit. So to you dullards on the right who said we couldn't afford it ... we could, did, and are the better for it. And you dullards on the left who think TARP was some giveaway to corporate America ... it's an awfully funny giveaway that requires you to repay what you received.

I hate it when naturalized citizens make me feel guilty by being better Americans than I am

"Game of soft ball with Katie." should be the name of her interviews for now on.

What he's doing is stalling so he and his VP pick can both practice their debating skills more...he knows they're about to get slaughtered.
Yeah, but if I had to skip a day of school I didn't just make a lame excuse, I made myself throw up or faked a fever. Pretending to be old-man sick probably wouldn't have hurt his campaign any worse.

No zealot like a convert, no patriot like an immigrant. God bless you, Ferguson.

A little naive, on some level, but Craig Ferguson will be Craig Ferguson.

"Democracy" was suspended on 9/11. NYC was scheduled to have some sort of primary election on that day.
