Whaddyaknow? McCain is going to show up for the first debate tonight after all. I know it's almost October and we're waiting with baited breath for the Pennant races and World Series but John McCain's grandstanding is not the sort America wants to see. His stunt to "suspend the Presidential campaign" until the financial bailout is achieved was just that...a stunt. I have to wonder if his campaign simply doesn't think he is ready for the event and wanted an out. Of course, McCain's placing himself "above the fray of politics" to step in and act presidential smacks of the worst kind of hucksterism. The entire gambit has backfired and I don't think even the most die-hard Republicans are too pleased right now.
But what a great night on tv for the rest of us!
