Despite busy schedule, McCain agrees to debate - Manchurian Moment unfolding?

Picture it - Karl Rove is hiding in the curtains behind Obama, a shot rings out and McCain clutches his chest... suddenly, Sarah Palin leaps onto the stage in her Supermom cape with a crossbow in one hand, semi-comatose infant in the other, pointing her weapon at the menacing black man across from her - the MSM flashes this well-choreographed but apparently real photo op all across the world, and... THE RAPE-PUBLIC-AGAIN PARTY STEALS ANOTHER ELECTION!!!
Despite logjam, McCain agrees to debate
RAW STORY
Published: Friday September 26, 2008

Despite the fact that there is still a logjam over the proposed $700 billion bailout plan, Republican presidential candidate John McCain decided Friday that he will debate Senator Barack Obama anyway.

"No such an agreement has been reached, but Republicans said the standoff was hurting McCain's campaign, and he would look terrible if he ruined the nationally televised, eagerly anticipated debate while Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) was ready to go onstage," Politico reports.

McCain's statement announced, "The McCain campaign is resuming all activities and the senator will travel to the debate this afternoon. Following the debate, he will return to Washington to ensure that all voices and interests are represented in the final agreement, especially those of taxpayers and homeowners."

Fox News reported that Obama left for the debate site nearly an hour before the McCain statement was released.

Shy V.

You do not know that Obama is a part of the system just like McCain? You don't knnow that he voted for the bankruptcy bill, the Homegrown Terrorism Act, against Class Action Fairness Act
and many other bills that are only for businesses?
PLEASE go and read 'The Obama Craze'. Then write a new article.
And unless a man has raped you, you are throwing that word around like it's popcorn. Find another.

IOK

After days of agonizing theatrical deliberation, MyCane chooses to show up for his first scheduled debate - does the guy know how to make the tough decisions, or what? The highlight for me was actually seeing him pronounce Ahmadinejad's name right, on the third attempt. So what if we get his words translated by Iran's mortal enemy and delivered by a senile old fart in thrall to that same enemy? And boy, does he know how to stay on message - "the surge is working! the surge is working!". But even a $5,000 makeup job cannot disguise that "the surgeon is lurking! "the surgeon is lurking!"
