McCain Blinks


McCAIN BLINKS….So I guess John McCain has blinked after all. The pull of the klieg lights was just a little too enticing for him, so he’s abandoning his role as Savior of the Bailout to head to Mississippi tonight for his first debate with Barack Obama. In possibly the most laughable comment of a laughable campaign, he claims that he’s able to do this because negotiators are now making “significant progress” in talks that would have been finished yesterday if he hadn’t parachuted heroically into Washington in the first place.

Still, give the old guy credit. He knows how to put on a show. If I were hiring a PR-Exec-in-Chief, he’d be my first choice.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
