McCain Campaign: High Comedy

I’ll get to some of the other issues that make the McCain campaign so farcical later, but this one stunned me:

McCain supporter Sen. Lindsey Graham tells CNN the McCain campaign is proposing to the Presidential Debate Commission and the Obama camp that if there’s no bailout deal by Friday, the first presidential debate should take the place of the VP debate, currently scheduled for next Thursday, October 2 in St. Louis.

In this scenario, the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin would be rescheduled for a date yet to be determined, and take place in Oxford, Mississippi, currently slated to be the site of the first presidential faceoff this Friday.

So in other words, McCain wants to delay Friday’s presidential debate until next Thursday, which was the original date of the Vice Presidential debate. The VP debate will be held “whenever.”

McCain knows that Palin is an incredibly weak candidate who he must keep on a short leash, and who is probably not up to the job of debating Joe Biden.

What better way to make sure that a VP debate never takes place?

Does he really think we’re too stupid to notice the cynicism of such a move?

  1. Sara Palin sould show Biden up very fast, he does not even know the dates of former Presidents.

  2. This is my favorite story about the McCain-Palin campaign so far:

  3. Sarah Palin is frighteningly ignorant. There can be no debate about this among reasonable people.
