Grandstanding Over

Ohhh…. Guess Big John will be going to the debate after all, un-huh.

As Blue Texan at Firedoglake aptly describes: ‘McCain Inserts Self into Financial Crisis, Fails Miserably, will attend debate.’ BT references this remark from Ellen Tauscher (D-CA) regarding McCain’s involvement:

He goes to a meeting and all of a sudden, we lose all the Republicans who have been working with us for the last five days.

Good looking out at putting ‘Country First’ ya dumb fuck.

Oh – and wander over and read what Digby writes today as well, quoting CNN last night about the ‘economic crisis’ and the ReThugs..

That’s pretty scary stuff that they’re thinking about party right now and not country, is that what you’re saying?” responded host Anderson Cooper.

“I think they’re, yes, they’re thinking about themselves,” said Rollins. “I think they don’t think that the threat is as great as a lot of other people do.”

Because as the question Digby poses, as always and has been – At what point to progressives put away the kumbaaya and recognize that we are not dealing with people who act in the nation’s best interest?
