McCain is not involved in writing the legislation. He's not on the conference committee. What is it the action that he'll be doing?

What is John McCain going to do in Washington? He doesn't know anything about the economy and he's not a lawyer so he won't be drafting legislation.

So.....he's integral how?

Please people do not lose sight of this pathetic attempt to "postpone" the VP debate. This is how stupid McCain thinks we all are.

29 years later, someone has finally attempted to live out Pink Floyd's The Wall album.

Ladies and gentlemen, Sarah Palin!

It is brilliant. There's only one problem: I don't want Biden to have to do it on short notice. I want him to absolutely annihilate Palin and I don't want an unexpectedly early date to reduce the chances of that happening.

If Biden had to do it in 5 minutes and so did she, you'd see an annihilation of epic proportions.

This woman isn't ready to debate a college poli sci class.

Over on a conservative site they’re saying McCain should send in Palin as a sub to debate Obama. They think this would be great. I can’t fathom the stupidity behind thinking like that, but hey, can you imagine? There would never have been a more one sided debate in history.

What do we have to suffer if they put a shitty bill through just so that something gets done?

Like anitram said, who do you think would be better prepared under short notice, Joe Biden or Sarah Palin?

And she's probably been stuck in study sessions since becoming the VP pick.
Probably why she hasn't spoken to reporters - to busy studying what her positions should actually be.

Again, why just talk when you can educate yourself and be part of the action?

So they should go to Washington for an education??? Are you serious?



A Congressional debate and brokering of this bill is different from that of any other bill how? Its importance lends nothing to the procedures in which it's debated and brokered. Both of these men already have quite the experience in debate and bill creation.

I just check Letterman's site. Apparently tonight's guests include Keith Olbermann. This should be interesting, no?


Also on that site:

Top Ten George W. Bush Ideas For Fixing the Economy
Top Ten



10. Why fix it if it ain't broke?

9. Drill Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for loose change

8. Sell cupcakes in front of the White House

7. Flip all them charts upside down

6. Encourage Americans to spend more -- If they don't, Cheney peppers them in the face

5. Most things seem better after half a bottle of Jim Beam

4. Let's just say the Lincoln Memorial is now the Tostitos Lincoln Memorial

3. Invent a car that runs on root beer. Come on, we have an unlimited supply of root beer. And we make it here in America. Am I the only one thinking?

2. Put on a pair of glasses and shoot a moose

1. Is Hillary still available for a 3am phone call?

My dream:

Obama: "I respect Senator McCain's decision to postpone his campaign so that he can focus on the economy. I have been focused on the economy every day for the last week. I think that the next President of the United States should be able to handle two things at once--especially when the nation is in crisis. The next President will not be able to "suspend" the military campaign in Iraq or Afghanistan in order to address another issue. The next President will not be able to suspend ______ in order to focus on ____. The next President will have to do many things of great importance at once. As candidates to be the next President of the United States, today's economic situation is a test to see if we are up to the task. I am up to the task. I implore Senator McCain to prove to America that he is, as well."
