The non-surprise of the day

The not-shocking news is that McCain is not waiting for an agreement on the bailout, is un-suspending his campaign,  and is un-deciding to skip tonight’s debate, putting him on stage with Obama in Mississippi for the first Presidential debate.  I’m un-surprised.

This whole fiasco has dropped my opinion of McCain into the nether regions.  I no longer have any respect for the man.  Pure political posturing for posturing’s sake, while trying to obscure it as patriotism, is disgusting from a man who has claimed to be the ultimate public servant and the only one in the race who has ever served his country.  

McCain has barely prepared for tonight’s debate.  I hope it shows.
