Here's to the brain trust of the McCain campaign, whose immediate reaction to anything they haven't scripted is to withdraw, suspend, run away, avoid, defer, put off, and procrastinate. Steve Schmidt, Mark Salter and Charlie Black:
Storm hitting the Gulf Coast during the Republicant convention?
A decade of Republican financial policies causing turmoil?
VP choice poops her pants in every single real (non-Fox News) interview?
Cut and run.
They are cockroaches scurrying away from the light. They know the more people see the vacuousness of their candidates, the less likely it is anyone other than the deadenders will vote for them.
