Where's Johnny? (Part II)
I spoke too soon when I said that drama queen McCain's little plan to use the bailout negotiations to get out of tonight's debate had backfired in spectacular fashion.
It actually backfired in unbelievably spectacular fashion.

(On that note, a great quote from Bob Cesca's piece that ran a couple of days ago at HuffPost: "So what will a McCain administration economic policy look like? From the lack of foresight and leadership we've witnessed so far, we can assume that McCain might choose a new economic policy totally at random, depending on how saucy he feels from minute to minute. 'I'll have a muffin with my Egg Beaters, and replace Bernanke with that hooplehead who weedwacks the knoll.' Two minutes later... 'Hey Phil, we don't need the Nasdaq anymore. Kill it.' Two minutes later... 'My God! What have I done! Quickly -- nationalize the paintball industry! Go!' One thing is for sure. Expecting a workable solution to this economic meltdown from a man as knee-jerk, dishonest and incomprehensible as John McCain would be an exercise in national self-destruction. He doesn't have anything real to say, and what he does say, he can't sell. He simply can't do the gig. A vote for McCain-Palin is absolutely a vote for the end of America as we know it.)
