    No joke----blasting a Senator for being in DC. What an odd concept for a Senator to be in DC. :lol:

    McCain hasn't cast a vote in the Senate since April.

    Only if you're too stupid to understand that the idiot is screwing around with our economic future....

    I wonder if McCain hired a stunt double for this one.

    Generally speaking.....people don't do stunts unless they're reasonably sure they'll be safe and sound when it's all over.

    With regards to the bailout, there's no way of knowing how it's going to play out. Suspending his campaign.....not appearing at the debate....the possibility that no agreement will be reached and he will have wasted his time trying to reach agreement.....there are simply too many variables involved to call it a "stunt", and there's absolutely no way of knowing how the American people will view his actions.

    I don't believe he did this as a stunt. I believe he did it because he hoped he could help the process along, and that it would be in the best interests of the nation....even though it might not be in his own best interests.

    Tough. McCain and House Republicans apparently haven't gone as socialist as Bush and Senate Republicans have.

    At least the circus has clowns though -- Congressional Democrats.:lol:
