Game on for the bailout, it seems. I guess that means McCain can stop suspending his campaign... oh, wait. Is he buying time to vote against it? Or just to read the three-page Paulson plan? Will the debate go on? How about the VP debate?
Update: Boehner boner? This is all so confusing. It's like normal politics, but with insanely high stakes and done at a meth-addled speed.
Update II: This sounds kind of plausible, in re McCain voting against the bailout, actually: "This is shaping up to be a real 'Cross of Gold' [more; the audio is amazing] moment." Marc Ambinder agrees. Given the sentiment on the left, right, and lots of other places, that might bring him support from both sides. And monkey-wrenching it alone might actually be a good idea just so shit will slow down. We are through the looking-glass, which Steve Chapman saw through early.
