Now McCain Wants To Postpone Palin's VP Debate

Dana Bash, CNN: I spoke with Senator Lindsey Graham, he is in the McCain campaign, he is negotiation -- is trying to negotiate with the Obama campaign and the presidential debate commission. What they are saying, and what he is saying is that they are proposing to instead of having next Thursday the vice presidential debate in St. Louis, to make that the presidential debate and then to delay the VP debate to another time. That is what they are proposing, they understand very well that both the Obama campaign and the debate commission have no intention of delaying Friday's debate, but both he and a senior advisor that if there is no bailout deal by Friday, McCain has no plan to go to debate.

Oh good lord...anyone else getting that Titanic-in-front-of-an-iceberg feeling? I guess those Navy planes aren't the only things that John McCain will be known for crashing. His campaign, in the ongoing comedy of errors swirling his sudden and reckless choice to "suspend" his campaign, accidentally released his talking points to the media. The headline: Do not reach out to the media on this. Whoops!

Funnily enough, McCain felt no compunction about debating back in 2000, while his good friend and senior economic advisor Phil Gramm negotiated the deregulation that got us in this situation in the first place.
