When Russia was invading Georgia, McCain rushed in, we’re all Georgians, let’s rumble with Russia! As Hurricane Gustav bore down on New Orleans, he partially cancelled the Republican convention. When Obama fared well at his convention, McCain’s response was to throw the ultimate hail Mary pass and choose Sarah Palin, an inexperienced governor, even though his entire campaign was built around criticizing his opponent’s inexperience. Economy in chaos? Wall St. in turmoil? McCain now says let’s fire the chairman of the SEC in the middle of the crisis.
