WTF?

Washington Post published poll results that show Obama leading by 9 points. Reaction from McCain campaign?

*crickets*

McCain cancels David Letterman appearance due to the nation’s dire financial situation then does a live interview down the street during Letterman’s taping. Letterman cues up live feed and asks the senator if he’d like a ride home.

*crickets*

McCain demands candidates suspend campaign, cancel debate, to deal with financial crisis. Obama says, uh, no…dumbass. We have planes. We can fly to DC for a vote. Presidents ought to be able to do more than one thing at a time.

*crickets*

Palin gets interviewed by soft-news princess Katie Couric and sounds like a stammering, clueless hick in so far out of her depth that you can only watch through your fingers. Meet the maverick! See the roadkill.

*crickets*

I believe we have finally, for true, followed the black light arrow around the bend. Cue the carnival music.
