On McCain suspending his campaign

Pelosi: “We have to be able to do a couple of things at once. That’s what leadership requires.”

Barney Frank: “It’s the longest Hail Mary pass in the history of either football or Marys.”

Sen. Schumer: “Just weird…”

Harry Reid: Stay away. “We need leadership; not a campaign photo op.”

David Letterman: “You don’t suspend your campaign. This doesn’t smell right. This isn’t the way a tested hero behaves. I think someone’s putting something in his Metamucil.”

The McCain campaign is also using this as an excuse to cancel the vice presidential debates. That Palin isn’t ready for prime time has become apparent to all. She still hasn’t had a real press conference, they tossed out the press yesterday at one event, and a new NBC/WSJ poll says 49% think she’s unqualified to be president.

The McCain campaign may end up being the most inept ever, even worse than John Kerry’s. We could be witnessing the self-destruction of a presidential campaign.
