    To suspend a campaign less than 40 days from an election is frankly a little too close to what can be called insanity. With the whole Republican Party bewildered and millions of dollars in contributions at stake McCain rolls the dice.

    Anyone smelling the putrid stench of a big dirty rat?

    Perhaps insanity is too strong a word; however madness which is closely related to insanity may be a better description. It’s just completely crazy to suspend a campaign this close to a general election without an alternate plan. The republican candidate understands his hero status has been greatly tarnished for chickening out of a much needed debate.

    Now seeking to become a hero of the economy super McCain plays Mr. Fix-it and rescues Wall Street. He returns to the campaign that was never really suspended as champion of the little guy for helping the fat cats receive a 700 billion dollar free lunch at taxpayer expense.

    This whole scenario implies something extremely smelly about the so-called banking dilemma. Without inside information about the recovery of the banking system it’s crazy to risk his whole campaign on a gamble. The 700 billion plot must be another financial scheme similar to the corruption born out of the whole “Keating 5” play book updated, modified and enlarged for 2008.

    Our Anti-American, Anti-journalism, communist news media plays a major role in the vast pyramid scheme our financial system has become since the creation of the bogus Federal Reserve system. The news media's misguided focus has been on experience, However "integrity" is where the focus should be. Look at all the experience of Cheney, however he is as corrupt as they come.

    You're saying this is a conspiracy of some sort?

    Nah, the guy is a complete hack. He may have had some sort of stroke (his droopy eye) and he is realizing what a buffoon Palin is, and suspending his campaign is a way to throw a monkeywrench in the works and get some rest at the same time. But for Jake's sake he really *ought* to be able to multitask if he hopes to be POTUS.

    Bush calling the candidates to the whitehouse, yeah, that was schemng, but in general McCain's stunt was just hack-iness.

    The georgian thing might have some conspiracy elements though. I never saw enough one way or the other on that.

    Frankly I don't find it funny, not a bit. It's sad and sickening at the same time.

    No, he didn't chicken out, and I wish some of you knuckleheads would read what's on the board before asking the same question one of your bretheren leftoids already asked.

    BOTH McCain and Obama are sitting Senators -- McCain a senior one. I'm sure that boot Obama would be missed less, but they have a job to do and they need to do THAT first.

    Or do you see campaigning for personal advancement as more important than dealing with a national econimic crisis? The answer to that should probably decide who is the next President.

    Obama was a chicken for not doing the town hall debates.

    He was also wrong to support FISA.

    He was also wrong to go back on his word about public financing.

    He is still the right man for the job. McCain is old, and given to going to extremes. In the course of ten days going from "the fundamentals of the economy are strong..." to "we may end up in another great depression if I do not go back to washington TODAY" -This from a man who admits he is not strong on economics.

    He is not the calm and steady hand that we need at the helm!

    And his policies suck too. Aggressive pre-emption overseas, deregulation at home, in the pocket of lobbyists -

    And he sold out "country first" by pandering to the religious right by picking a no-experience VP candidate who admittedly has a force field to protect her from witches but who does not know squat about foreign policy....
