McCain wants Friday’s debate postponed to concentrate on the economic crisis. Give me a break. This really takes the cake. He’s an idiot and a coward.

From the Associated Press today:
Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who has not held a press conference in nearly four weeks of campaigning, on Tuesday banned reporters from her first meetings with world leaders, allowing access only to photographers and a television crew.
CNN, which was providing the television coverage for news organizations, decided to pull its TV crew, effectively denying Palin the high visibility she had sought.
The republican ticket is a total joke. McCain is Nero playing his violin.

I’m going to go out on a limb. I’m guessing that McCain chose this big haired chickee-do without reading any of the background gathered on her and that almost no background was gathered on her because no one thought he would actually pick this refugee from a trailer park. We know he can’t use a cell phone. We know he can’t use a computer. I’ve heard it said from a former Viet Nam era pilot that there were serious questions about whether he knew how to fly a plane. Now, I think we can conclude that either he doesn’t know how to read or he would rather not be bothered with facts. I’m also guessing that they didn’t know the kid was pregnant. I have one more guess. Guess number three is that the husband is having an affair. I’m pulling this out of thin air but it would consistent with everything else we know about this family. Here’s a guy who races snow mobiles. He has no intellectual interests and his wife has soaring ambition. I’m betting he has a big-haired waitress on the side.
In the factual realm, more is coming out on Palin. The New York Times reports today that she was a member of the Alaska Independence Party. Woo Hoo. That’s a group of total nutters. Also, hubby has a DUI on his record. From the New York Times:
Aides to Mr. McCain said they had a team on the ground in Alaska now to look more thoroughly into Ms. Palin’s background. A Republican with ties to the campaign said the team assigned to vet Ms. Palin in Alaska had not arrived there until Thursday, a day before Mr. McCain stunned the political world with his vice-presidential choice. The campaign was still calling Republican operatives as late as Sunday night asking them to go to Alaska to deal with the unexpected candidacy of Ms. Palin.
Apparently, McCain didn’t even meet with Palin until a day or so before the nomination. He was hoping to have Lieberman, aka Pfizer Own’s Me, on the ticket. McCain had the arrogance and stupidity to nominate a total know nothing idiot to the second highest office in the country without bothering to find out anything about her and I think that means there is more fun to come. The ultimate fun will come if McCain has to withdraw her nomination.

The latest intellectual giant to join the republican ticket, Sarah Palin, is ready for the Jerry Springer Show. She revealed today that her 17 year old daughter is pregnant. She also announced that her daughter will marry the father and have the baby. No particular order for those events was specified. Apparently, the girl does not have a vote but that’s totally in keeping with the republican platform.

Wesley Clark spoke the truth last week in an unfortunate way. He said that being shot down and held captive and tortured does not necessarily endow one with the skills to run a country. He was slammed for this and he should have foreseen how such a comment would have played in the press. McCain slips into his role as Dickens’ Tiny Tim whenever anyone criticizes him. He opens his closet, drags out his crutches and looks pitiful. It’s tiring and predictable.
Wesley Clark spoke the truth. McCain couldn’t run a lemonade stand. An article in the New York Times today about the relentlessly poor management of the McCain campaign supports Clark. From the New York Times:
Senator McCain’s campaigns have long been defined by internal squabbling and power plays, zigzagging lines of command and a penchant by the candidate for consulting with former advisers without alerting current ones, always a recipe for disquiet.
McCain is the boy who never grew up. He’s immature and that’s the irony of this campaign. The younger man, Obama, is the more mature candidate.
McCain’s staff is now dominated by the disciples of Karl Rove. That’s profoundly disturbing and it means that the campaign is going to be very nasty. Horrible things will be done and said by this staff and “Tiny Tim” McCain will hobble to the microphone on his crutches and say he doesn’t believe in that and won’t tolerate it and it will continue to happen. He’s done that for his whole career. He plays it one way in front the camera in his “Tiny Tim” character and then he does the opposite when the TV lights are turned off. Pardon me for saying this, but the only thing possibly worse than four more years of Bush is four years of McCain. Or, should I say, Karl Rove, part deux. From the Times article:
Mr. Rove is not directly involved in the McCain campaign, but his presence there can be seen in the number of his protégés who now hold central roles there. Mr. Schmidt tops that list; coming in a very close second is Nicolle Wallace, who was communications director for Mr. Bush in 2004 and in the White House.
All of this intrigue breeds discouragement among even those former McCain associates who do not dispute the notion that voters now might be getting an early glimpse of the messy, unstructured way in which a McCain White House might be managed. They are hard-pressed to explain why Mr. McCain tolerates this — or encourages this — or why he has trouble cutting ties with people who have not served him well over the years.
“I can’t answer the why,” said John Weaver, who was one of Mr. McCain’s closest advisers before being forced out in a shake-up last year. “It is just that way and for his own sake, he needs to finally, firmly decide where he wants to take this campaign.”
