BREAKING: McCain Blinks, Will Attend Debate tonight

It's official, McCain lost the political game of Chicken. He's announced that he will be at the debate tonight in Mississippi.

Republican John McCain is going to be at tonight's presidential debate, his campaign said Friday, even though Congress doesn't have a bailout deal in place.

How do you think this week's shenanigans will affect either candidate's performance?

The focus of this debate is supposed to be foreign policy. How much foreign policy will be discussed?


He's a joke.

The only bigger joke would be to have the Moose Mom there.

Doubts about Dole?

I am sooooo looking forward to this evening

Ryan Teague Beckwith has been asking folks around these parts where the "Debate" parties are tonight, and being the generous soul that I am, I mentioned one being held by the Drinking Liberally group. Not sure he wants us lib'ruls, though, since he says DOME is especially interesed in "undecideds."

What kind of idiot is undecided at this stage of the game?

Actually I wouldn't mind being in a mixed crowd, just to watch the expressions on 't'other side.

We're having a party in Winston

At least--I've invited some folks; not sure if anyone will be here but us chickens. I too was thinking anyone with a pulse couldn't possibly be undecided at this point--but then it was pointed out to me that some don't have access to a lot of news--and may still be collecting information. It's a stretch for me to buy that, but I suppose it's possible. Even without current news, it seems like the platforms and visions of the 2 major parties are pretty clear and distinctly different.

Only the most deluded of us could doubt the necessity of this war. - John McCain

Awww have fun at the DL party

We'll miss you here on the live-blog

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Where at, Bru?

I mentioned one being held by the Drinking Liberally group.

I might just show up, then you can smack me around in person. ;)

Do you have to be a member? Is there like...a secret handshake or something?
