John McCain has said he is suspending his campaign so he can rush to Washington and work on the bailout plan with Congressional leaders. He is also saying he wants to postpone the first Presidential debate, which is scheduled for Friday and has been scheduled for almost a year.
This is the same John McCain who has not bothered to show up for a Senate vote since April 8.
This is the same John McCain who has favored deregulation for years, a big part of why we have this crisis going on even as we speak.
This is the same John McCain who admitted earlier this year that he doesn't know very much about economics and said he needs to be 'educated' about it.
The truth of the matter is that McCain has been out there campaigning nearly every day while Senator Obama has spent some time off the campaign trail prepping for the debates. So McCain's offer is a lot like an unprepared student who realizes two days before the big exam that he hasn't been cracking the books, trying to figure out a way to get his test pushed back so he can catch up to the rest of the class.
