    Exactly. McCain has only postponed the cornpone.

    I don't know, one public showing of Pink Flamingos and he will lose all his support.

    He could pass that off as a documentary in some parts of this country nowadays. Maybe he could call it "community filmmaking."

    He can simply deny that he had anything to do with it. Failing that he can say that the movie took a different turn after he expressed disapproval, but that it was too late by then for certain scenes. All these difficulties endured show that he's feisty too, and that's a good thing.

    Canceling a nationally televised perennial presidential debate is fine, but how dare he cancel on Letterman. How dare he.

    Looks like a deal might get struck on the bailout, leaving McCain with no excuse not to debate.

    I think that may have been his hope all along. I don't think he fears debating Obama. I think he was just trying to put the political screws to him with this "it's for the country" charade. McCain tends to do well with direct questioning, as opposed to speechifying.

    I think that's what they were going to try to do, paint that whole argument, but I'm watching the news now, and it looks like tomorrow everyone will the debate on their minds, and Mississippi stands to lose $5 mil if he backs out.

    The big meeting just ended - it lasted about an hour and supposedly McCain said very little during it. He and Obama's "demands" are pretty similar. That executives should have at least some restrictions put on their salaries and bonuses so as not to make a windfall out of this. That there be at least some oversight on the doling out from this kitty etc. Bush supposedly agreed, but they're still "working out some details". Business as usual.
