HELLO JOE, WHERE DID YOU GO?
Can't you just hardly wait for the post-mortems on the campaign of poor Calamity John?
The scandal that the News Media will not pick up on for today is the 4,000 schoolchildren bussed in to fill the empty seats at this political rally. The entire Reliance, Ohio school district was apparently enlisted to revivify the McCain campaign's image. Perhaps he should have simply gotten down to brass tacks and asked for some blood. Or platelets, anything!
The absence of one newly-minted living talking point celebrity isn't nearly as meaningful. OTOH, it is funny.
