Of galluses and other suspenders (or not)

Joe Sudbay at Americablog notes the following:
Until the traditional media types can show some shred of evidence that John McCain suspended his campaign -- besides McCain saying it -- the traditional media types should stop saying McCain suspended his campaign. He didn't.

Evidence abounds that McCain's campaign is operating at full speed. We've been able to document here and here and here. Think Progress found five instances of McCain campaign flacks on t.v. spinning their message. There's active campaign underway in Virginia. And, by doing some actual investigating, Huffington Post confirmed that the McCain campaign is very active today in key battleground states.
But Johnny boy has rushed back to the Senate (for his first visit in months) as though working toward a solution to our economic woes hinged on his presence. Last time I checked, he has been a long-standing champion of deregulation, which is how we got in this mess in the first place. Unless he is willing to stand up and say "I helped fuck over the American economy and I repent in dust and ashes and will now work to restore regulatory oversight and limit the activities of rapacious predators" then prove it with his votes I think he should just STFU. Oh, and get his ass over to Ole Miss for the debate so we can listen to him lie.

Irresponsible shithook twit.
