anyone see Letterman last night?
Seeing as McCain canceled his appearance to 'race' to Washington and solve all of our problems, Dave had Kieth Olberman on in his place.
Think what you will of Olberman, he made an interesting point about the debate.
First, all 4 debates were scheduled to take place in the span of 19 days. Because of this tight schedule, he indicated that we're more likely to see
one of the debates canceled rather than rescheduled. Now lets see, who would benefit from a cancellation? Seems to me, that it's a little
out of line to cancel a presidential debate, this leaves the VP debate as the sole candidate for cancellation, which obviously benefits McCain, as
Palin isn't likely to fair too well against Biden.
I tend to agree, and think that McCain is simply using current events to his advantage as much as possible. He's losing ground again as the Palin
Effect begins to wear off, and the debates are likely to be the nail in the coffin so to speak.
Edit to add...
Oh, and you don't just suspend your campaign, you send your VP candidate out to continue the campaign in your absence. In my opinion, McCain
has simply turned his nose up at the people of this country, as well as the democratic process.
There is only one justifiable reason to suspend a campaign, and that is suspension of the election. However, there is absolutely NO justifiable
reason to suspend the election.
