I had started another post regarding the economy when the crazy that is McCain hit the airwaves and blogosphere.

What a freak.

For full disclosure - yes, I'm a democrat, but I have no issue with pointing out the flaws of my party. You've read this blog - right? The DNC and their folks can be just as big of fuck-ups.

But my g-d! These last 12 hours have been hilarious, but I can already see how the GOP will spin it. Everyone can - and though it is full of hole, ones you can drive tractor-trailers through, it won't stop them. And my fear is middle america will ignore it.

McCain going to personally solve the credit crisis so we don't go into the Great Depression II - as he stated on CBS yesterday! Mind you - eight days ago he said "the fundamentals of the economy are strong". That's quite an eight days, don't you think?

I've heard nothing out of McCain's mouth on how to salvage the goings-on over the last few weeks. Hell, even Meredith Viera took McCain to task about his stance on not giving rewards to CEOs who put us in this mess. .....well, except for his own financial adviser, Carly Fiorina who got a $45 million golden parachute while 20,000 HP folks lost their jobs.

I've kind of stopped watching Keith Olbermann, but I really really really suggest you watch (on-line) his show from last night. I don't know it's easy to do, but you can podcast it. You don't really need the visuals. The show really encapsulates the weirdness of the last day.

I have to be in Nashville for the next three days (don't ask) and not sure I am going to blog, but I was planning on getting drunk and watching the first debate. Now, I'm not sure I'm going to be able to do that.

....except the getting drunk part.
