The Debate is On: McCain Flip-Flops Again

crossposted 26 september 2008 firedoglake


The Presidential debate will go on as scheduled. So McCain's campaign suspension is suspended. Or something.

From Reuters:

Republican John McCain said he will attend the first of three presidential debates with Democrat Barack Obama on Friday, ending two days of suspense and setting up a showdown that could help decide a tight race for the White House.

McCain had vowed to skip the debate if a $700 billion rescue of the U.S. financial industry was not settled, but his campaign said in a statement that enough progress had been made to go ahead.

"The McCain campaign is resuming all activities and the senator will travel to the debate this afternoon," the statement said. He will come back to Washington after the event and return to the negotiations.

Psychiatrists and wikipedia define maverick as schizophrenic, self centered, unwilling to belong, party-of-self, suppozably centrist, like Nixon, Giuliani, Dole (all selfish womanizers). Avenge Abramoff. We know McCain' retired Senate buddies did whatever Abramoff did. Jack's only sin was beeing too young and too successful and Jewish. Call him Maverdick. Damoto milked financial reform for donations, causing this crisis, and benefiting Dick Grasso, Lou Ranieri, Palmisano, and Chaminade's Gerstner. WHile they were all doing Diogardi's whore baths like Zenya Mucha and Mira Beretta.
