Let's face it... he's tired. This is McCain's way of sweeping into the Presidential sessions, sitting back while some decisions are made and then holding an emergency press conference to let us all know that he's saved the day. Give us a break! This doesn't make him more of a "patriotic stateman." This just shows he doesn't have the capacity to walk and chew gum at the same time. And as Obama put it so elegantly, "I think that it is going to be part of the president's job to deal with more than one thing at once."
"This doesn't smell right," David Letterman said during a routine that only half appeared to be a joke. "This is not the way a tested hero behaves. Somebody's putting something in his Metamucil."
How can you argue with reasoning like that?
