"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

I are serious candidate. This is serious suspenshun.

So John McCain is supposed to be Mighty Mouse, coming in to save the day on the bailout plan, which is something only he can do.

Yet as of Tuesday (the day before his "suspension"), he had not yet even read the Paulson bill? It's only three pages long.


Like I said, this is about the debates.

UPDATE: Jake Tapper has more on today's Bush-McCain-Obama meeting:

The White House's official list of those planning to attend the hastily-convened meeting called by President Bush this afternoon to discuss the Wall Street bailout bill includes a senior policy adviser to the campaign Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Douglas Holtz-Eakin.

Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., had been told not to bring any campaign staff. He will be bringing a member of his Senate staff, Ian Solomon, a legislative assistant focused on economic issues.

His campaign adviser's presence notwithstanding, McCain announced Wednesday that he was suspending his campaign activities to focus on getting the people's business done.
Obama brings a Senate aide, McCain brings a campaign adviser. Remind me who's claiming that their campaign is 'suspended' again?
