Remember when you played tag when you were younger and just when you were about to get tagged, you’d yell “Time out” so you could catch your breath. That’s John McCain’s campaign strategy.
John “Country First” McCain has decided to suspend his campaign (but not his attacks on Barack Obama) and delay the debates so he can singlehandedly save the nation’s economy. How noble of him. The thing is that his website is still collecting campaign donations and his ads have continued running. I’m beginning to see a pattern with the McCain campaign: every time they run behind in the polls, they take a gamble. It makes you wonder that if McCain were elected President, would he make a non-commonsensical move every time he dropped in the polls.
Barack Obama is planning on hosting a townhall meeting on Friday if McCain is MIA. Is McCain really going to give Obama the opportunity to talk to millions of voters without him? Risky, risky, risky.
One person who has not happy with McCain’s decision to suspend his campaign was David Letterman. McCain called at the last minute to cancel his appearance on the show. Check out the clip of a not-so-happy Letterman:
