Huh?

McCain Calls for Debate Delay to Focus on Financial Crisis

We all know what a shameless prankster John McCain is, a loser forced to play long shots in desperation, a clown whose addiction to the maverick schtick is rooted in impatience and ignorance, a pretender who needs to change the subject, through crude tricks and senseless bravado, before we all see how limited he really is.

His VP choice, a clear repudiation of his claims about experience and patriotism, confirmed us in this knowledge of McCain's true character.

His calling for the firing of the SEC Chairman fell in line with that narrative - clumsy, hypocritical and ill-informed bullying by the self-proclaimed "deregulator".

Now we have this news, and it is hard not to grimace at the disgraceful farce that the GOP have nominated for President of the United States. Today's ridiculous announcement suggests that the balance of this campaign is going to be a grim, manipulative and degrading affair.

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
