John McCain’s latest campaign strategy is to be so wacky and unpredictable, nobody knows what he’ll do next.
It wasn’t enough to pluck an untested hockey mom from obscurity as his running mate. Ditto: pronouncing the economy fundamentally strong while Wall Street imploded.
Now, he’s charging back to Washington on his white horse to whip everyone into shape and hammer out a bailout deal. No matter that he has yet to offer a single useful new idea and they’re reaching compromises just fine without him.
By suspending his campaign, McCain hopes to evade his first debate with Barack Obama, and perhaps even cause a domino effect to win Sarah Palin a reprieve from facing Joe Biden. How convenient.
But while McCain single-handedly saves Wall Street, why doesn’t he have his battle-hardened, fully-qualified Veep campaign in his place?
I think we know the answer to that one.
This attempt to rise from the ashes of his fast-dwindling poll numbers is so transparent, it makes you wonder how they can still capture the guy on film.
McCain is showing us he’s another Republican who can’t walk and chew gum, prone to belated over-reactions to emergencies.
Hmmm… who does that remind you of?
Besides, letting McCain and his ilk clean up this mess they helped create with their laissez-faire attitude toward big business is like asking vampires to guard the blood bank.
That burning odor you smell? It’s McCain’s campaign going down in flames.
