McCain suspends campaign; wants to delay debate

In the second week of a disasterous economic crisis, John McCain just announced he will suspend campaigning and wants to postpone the first presidential debate that is scheduled for 48 hours from now, to come to Washington and work on the bailout.

Last week, McCain said the fundamentals of the economy are strong.

Later, he explained that he was talking about the American workforce. He was all over the map last week, seemingly flailing and lashing out at SEC chairman Chris Cox and wanting to fire the head of the "FEC". (Oops)

What he didn't do was rush to Washington and suspend his campaign. Last night's ABC/WP poll showing he was diving among likely voters may be a factor in his sudden decision today.

If he wants to be POTUS, how does this reflect on McCain's handling the serious issues of the office?

Will the world only hand him one crisis at a time?

I've been registering voters in California the past two weekends. Sarah Palin's GOP convention speech didn't just "energize their base", it energized me.

California's deadline to register for the November 4th election: October 20th. If you haven't registered or have moved or changed your name since you registered, you need to register now.

The Sully Awakening

I’ve read Andrew Sullivan off and on since 2004 and watched his appearances on Bill Maher’s HBO show (BTW, he’s on again Friday, September 19th).

Since he’s taken on the blatent dishonesty of the McCain/Palin ticket, his blog has been de-linked by most of the right-wing blogosphere.

If you haven’t read his blog, The Daily Dish, please check it out and tune into HBO Friday night to see him on Bill Maher. You be the judge.
