First, for all you people who think he was "taken by surprise" by McCain's announcement -- the withered fool showed his hand in their second phone conversation. You don't think from that MOMENT Camp Obama was preparing a response? Pshaw.
Obama may not share all my political views, but with each passing day he has my growing admiration as a superb politician.
He made everyone wait for his response -- and they cut into all programming to run his PRESS CONFERENCE about it. He got free air time to
A) Act, sound and look Presidential -- AGAIN;
B) Tell the TRUE story of how things transpired that day -- AND make McCain look like the weaselly douchebag he is by illustrating how McCain stole the credit for the joint statement idea and tried to undercut Obama by going ahead with the "postpone the debate" idea and calling his own press conference; and
C) He basically got to call McCain a chickenshit who can't walk and chew gum at the same time -- in his usual cool, unimpeachable way.
Every day, in every way, I'm feeling better and better about this election.
