Political commentators are ripping into McCain over this, and I'm reading that Letterman's slams are the equivalent to Walter Cronkite's death-blow to the Vietnam War. I don't think it's that dramatic, but certainly a setback for McCain.
More significant than ticking-off a talk show host, is the White House throwing a monkey-wrench into the financial bail-out plans at the last minute today, so McCain could appear to get credit for some new scheme that no one's heard of yet. As some in Congress, who almost had the plan finalized, have noted it seems the White House is now focused on a McCain bail-out plan, rather than a financial bail-out plan for the country. This is pathetic.
Meanwhile, Palin continues to argue that being able to see a remote shore of Russia from Alaska gives her foreign policy experience. I mean, can anyone with half a brain take the Republicans serious at this point? This would be Saturday Night Live material if it wasn't our futures at stake.
