I thought it was a joke when I saw that McCain was suspending his campaign and attempting to cancel Friday’s debate, so he can do his job or some sh*t. This man said that he’s suspending his campaign (and suggesting that Obama do the same) so that they can focus on the financial crisis. Riiiiiight. I’m sure it has nothing to do with McCain being scared sh*tless that my main homie Obama is going to tear into his geriatric ass in Friday’s scheduled debate. We all know that campaigning is very time consuming and we also know that there are very important things going on in this country right now, not the least of which is the flailing economy, but suspending the campaign? Come on! This kind of stuff is why we need to hear from our presidential candidates. We want to hear what new ideas they have to fix this sinking ship Bush has created for us. This is the time to have a vigorous debate about substantive issues like foreclosures, government bailouts, healthcare, education and other stuff that matters (ie not how many celebrity friends someone has). Punk move, McCain.
Oh and did you see Katie Couric’s interview with Sarah Palin? LMAO! Man, that was pure comedy right there. Couric wasn’t exactly being aggressive with Palin, but ol’ girl still couldn’t get it together. Couric asked Palin to provide specific examples in the past 26 years where McCain has encouraged more regulation and Palin’s response was “I’ll try to find you some and bring ’em to ya.” Ummm, wow. She doesn’t even know her running mate’s record. She’s such a ridiculous choice. I’m amazed that Republicans haven’t revolted. If McCain was some spry 50ish-year old dude, I could see why folks might not care too much if she’s VP or not, but dude is 72 (and not a graceful 72, might I add). He might get the big one or become senile in his first term and then we would have little miss “I just got a passport last year” running the country and hence the free world. Scary.
