This bullshit* from the McCain campaign about John McCain riding into the Senate and saving the day is kind of stunning. It’s somewhere between hilarious and frightening—frightening insofar as anybody actually believes that McCain is some kind of a superhero who will swoope to the rescue of the helpless Congress, saving the planet from the menace of investment bankers. Congress reached a deal just a few minutes ago, so apparently they were doing just fine without him. Which makes sense, since McCain hasn’t actually read Paulson’s three-page bailout plan.
* This has a very specific definition.
