Hijinks Ensue

What on earth is going on in the presidential campaign? McCain's put his whole campaign on hold! He claims it's so that he can focus all his energies on the economy and the bailout package, but come on--that can't be real. I'm sure that, as a senator, he has to focus on more than one thing at a time. If he becomes president, he'll have to do it even more. It's not good practice if he stops everything else while he puts all his attention in one place. And what, exactly, is he planning to do while his campaign is suspended? Were the negotiations in Congress on hold because he wasn't participating? Perhaps he doesn't realize it, because he's been going to such lengths to ignore them, but as a presidential candidate, John McCain travels with quite a group of reporters who would be extremely distracting to those in the midst of hard and heavy negotiations (unless they're getting a quick vacation themselves, because once the campaign's been suspended, there's nothing for them to cover). Harry Reid is aware of that, and he was happy to remind McCain of that fact.

Since before the convention, McCain's campaign has been a gimmick followed by a stunt, over and over, and over, ad nauseam. Has he got any content at all? What's he even trying to accomplish in suspending his campaign? When I first heard about it, I didn't think that this must be a decisive move, I assumed that McCain must've been suffering from some sort of health problem. But then when I saw Palin's interview with Katie Couric. It came as no surprise when McCain wanted to back out of Friday's debate and then suggested a new presidential event replace the vice-presidential debate currently scheduled. Palin has no idea what she's talking about. It only makes sense that the McCain people would want to keep that under wraps.
