Oh, McCain. Your political powerplay of supposedly suspending your campaign and trying to weasel out of debating Barack backfired. Even the Huckster thinks it was a “huge mistake“.
Huckabee said he still backs McCain’s candidacy, but said the Arizona senator should not have put his campaign on hold to deal with the financial crisis on Wall Street. He said a president must be prepared to “deal with the unexpected.” “You can’t just say, ‘World stop for a moment. I’m going to cancel everything,'” Huckabee said.
You flip-flop on your issue positions, but now you’ve even flip-flopped on the debate itself, John. But I’m glad you changed your mind, since administrators at Ole Miss said cancelling the debates would have been financially devastating. Plus, Barack would have showed up (because he can multi-task–an important skill for a president, no?) and done the debate without you. You better get ready for the ball, Cinderella, because it’s going to be a good one.
I, however, will not be able to watch it live because I will be enjoying the musical stylings of the one and only Mr. Ben Folds. Somebody TiVo it for me, please?! The debates are being held at Ole Miss and will be broadcasted at 9 p.m. on pretty much every news network. WATCH THEM.
UPDATED: Apparently I don’t have to watch the debates, because John McCain has already declared himself the winner. I am not joking. The man that tried to get out of the debates ran an ad this morning in the WSJ that he had won the debates! Click here for the WaPo story. Here is the ad:
HAHAHAHA. Somebody’s getting fired today…
