So much for the urgency of the financial crisis. The first presidential debate between Barack Obama and John McCain at the University of Mississippi will go ahead as originally scheduled. The Associated Press lede shows even the mainstream media will call a stunt a stunt.
Republican John McCain agreed to attend the first presidential debate Friday night even though Congress doesn't have a bailout deal, reversing an earlier decision to delay the event until Washington had taken action to address the crisis.
The financial crisis was created by the George Bush and the Republican Party, exacerbated by the Republican Party, and, after last night, even stage managed by John McCain and the Republicans. But good luck at tonight's debate, John.
