John McCain's presidential campaign has melted down into a sludge of lies, denial, and attention-grabbing stunts.

Republican presidential nominee John McCain this afternoon said he would suspend his presidential campaign tomorrow to return to Washington and help reach agreement on a plan to solve the financial crisis on Wall Street, and called for a delay of Friday night's presidential debate.

"It has become clear that no consensus has developed to support the Administration's proposal,'' McCain said in a brief statement to reporters. "I do not believe that the plan on the table will pass as it currently stands, and we are running out of time.''

McCain said he is calling on President Bush "to convene a meeting with the leadership from both houses of Congress, including Senator Obama and myself. It is time for both parties to come together to solve this problem."

The campaign also announced that McCain was canceling today's planned appearance on the "Late Show with David Letterman."
John McCain hasn't set foot inside the U.S. Senate chamber since April. Now, we're supposed to believe he is so committed to the legislative process that he is willing to pass up a chance to chat with Dave? Please.

McCain's campaign is tanking, right along with the economy that he admits (and proves every time he opens his mouth) that he doesn't understand. This is nothing but his latest attempt at fabricating a game changer. He doesn't seem to understand that the economy is already a game changer, and Obama is winning. McCain is already branded as the candidate who thinks the Fundamentals of the Economy Are Strong. That perception is what is being reflected in recent polls. No amount of gimmickry is going to change that.
