McCain wigging out


Somebody get John McCain back on his meds. All the guy knows how to do is stoke crisis and create drama. Now he's "suspending his campaign" and coming back to the Senate where he's missed 412 votes this year -- hasn't been seen since April.

He's gone just completely wacko -- but that's the pattern. In August he tried to jack up a nice little war with Russia over Georgia; then he named a small time, completely unqualified minor politician as his Veep because her counterintuitive plumbing (for a Republican) made for a nice media splash.

Now he's tanking in the polls and doesn't want play the game anymore.

We need a President who can walk and chew gum, a President who can stop and THINK when confronted with reality. McCain isn't it.

Cynic that I am, even I am surprised by how completely out-of-control this man seems to have become under the pressures of running for President.

Yeah, but it's a brilliant move -- go to DC, broker (or try to broker :-p ) a nonpartisan agreement, show crisis leadership. I'm not saying I like it, and I agree with you, but it's still brilliant strategy on one or two levels.

Lord have mercy.

You're right on the ball! Too bad there are so many yahoos out there who do not recognize McCain for what he is.

We'll see if it is a brilliant move. I doubt it. There is some indication that the purpose is to enable McCain to substitute one of his debates for the Palin-Biden encounter, thereby shielding her from scrutiny. The mind reels. The results of his impulsive recklessness are showing him up -- and we deserve more from someone with the incalcuable chutzpah to run for President!

You're right, he looks ridiculous and even the most idiotic "undecided" voter is now going "no way." Thank you, Jesus and the Virgin Mary.

Yeah, it's turning against him. Thank you, Jesus, indeed. Good response from Obama, too. Also from Stephen Colbert...

He isn't the president and the only good he could do in Washington is strong arm the Republicans to vote for the bailout. Since nearly everyone is against the bailout, it appears his judgment is off the mark yet again.
