I still fail to see how it is a 'Liberal Trap'. John McCain put himself into that position. No Liberal trapped him between a rock and a hard
place, he did it himself. He lied to Letterman. He made the big deal about suspending his campaign. No one said that he had to go on Letterman and
tell jokes. Jerry Seinfeld didn't tell any jokes on Letterman when he was on there after Kramer used the N-Word...
He could have told Letterman the truth, instead of lying, telling him he was rushing back to Washington and instead give an interview in the same
city, to the same network Letterman is on...
There is no Liberal trap here. McCain mishandled just about every step in regard to the crisis. First claiming that the 'fundamentals of the
economy are strong' to then claiming that the fundamentals of the economy are 'the American people, and their hard work'.
Come on, anyone who knows one sliver of knowledge about the economy, knows that economists are not referring to the 'hard work and innovation of the
American people', they are talking about stock values, business performance projections, evaluations of credit risks... McCain didn't know what he
was talking about, and he still doesn't.
The only trap here is the one McCain set for himself...
