Did The Dog Eat John McCain’s Debate Notes?

John McCain is so scared to debate Obama, that he’s reneged on his Friday debate commitment all in the name of patriotism.   Yup — the guy who almost never shows up for Senate votes,  is apparently planning to swoop into Washington, fix our fiscal crisis and, only then, resume campaigning and debate.  After all,  John McCain is such a “country first” kinda guy.

The good news is that Obama isn’t falling for the canceled debate bait.

Did The Dog Eat John McCain’s Debate Notes? (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

This Friday’s debate won’t proceed,
Says McCain, while pretending to lead.
We’ve a crisis at hand.
Country first — his demand.
Be a patriot, John, and concede.

    Coffee came out my nose when McCain further suggested that the presidential debates be held the following week *in place of* the VP debates.

    Hello? Did he think no one would see through his obvious attempt to hide his running mate’s shortcomings?
    Why not just hold a magnifying glass over your hidden agenda, dude?

    McCain has been quakin’ and quailin’
    As all of his efforts are failin’.
    I think he is hidin’
    His veep from Joe Biden…
    Beside whom his running mate’s Palin.
