Today McCain announced that he would suspend his campaign to focus on the bailout crisis. (The bailout that Republicans are supposed to be against according to their own platform, see earlier post) Furthermore, he wants the debate scheduled for Friday night to be postponed. However, Americans don't agree with him. In polls taken today, only 10% thought the debate should be postponed. And only 14% thought the campaigns should be suspended.
It's somewhat amusing that the guy who has missed the most votes in this Congress due to his campaign now all of a sudden wants to suspend his campaign to do what we've been paying him to do all along. Guilty conscience for collecting a paycheck without showing up for work? Doubt it. Political ploy? You betcha.
