Is this not the day, the moment McCain has personally come to terms with the end of his candidacy for president?

McCain's abrupt and disrespectful about face with the Obama camp, his own campaign, his commitment to debate and even show up for a Letterman taping today, his "cut and run" off to an utterly unsolicited, self-righteous return to Washington (on the pretext of assisting a bipartisan emergency salvation of the American economy) has lit up his true colors like a computer enhanced pyrotechnic broadcast at a Chinese Olympic event.

Now, he along with Palin are running from the headlights of the press. Running to Washington. Not to meddle with the intricate negotiations already hammed out to benefit Wall Street, but to huddle with Republican operatives to salvage a way to get through the rest of this disastrous campaign with minimal collateral damage to the party (esp. House Republicans).

Letterman is rightfully pissed and not pulling any punches.

CNN has diminished its overly indulgent efforts to be "balanced" in favor of the McCain POV.

CBS (Katie's interview) today has revealed only a sense of pity for Palin's punishment for having been desperately drafted (and accepting) to stand in for an impossible and inappropriate Republican candidate for the presidency.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
