McCain Vinty, you ignorant slut

Now with top-of-the-post update: All right, I relent.  It's an okay idea.  I will agree with it just because Harry Reid doesn't want McCain in DC.

As much as I love populism (groan), this is absolutely stupid:

John McCain announced Wednesday he is suspending his campaign tomorrow and returning to Washington to work on the economic crisis, and called on opponent Barack Obama to join him.

He also called on the Commission on Presidential Debates to postpone the first faceoff until Congress addressed the crisis.

“Tomorrow morning, I will suspend my campaign and return to Washington after speaking at the Clinton Global Initiative. I have spoken to Senator Obama and informed him of my decision and have asked him to join me,” he said in New York, according to a transcript of the remarks released by his campaign.

“I am calling on the President to convene a meeting with the leadership from both houses of Congress, including Senator Obama and myself. It is time for both parties to come together to solve this problem,” he said.

And, of course, Barack Obama won't join him, and the McCain campaign will lose valuable campaign time with only a little over a month before the election.  Campaign time that could be used to help beat back their deficit in the polls.  

Meanwhile, my guess is that the media will play this up as a "cynical" way to delay this first debate.  Because Senile Old McCain just can't handle being in the ring with The One.

Update: Allahpundit seems more positive than me about this move.  Welcome to Bizarro World.  And guess what, Obama isn't playing along.  Gee, who would have guessed?

Update (again): Well, it seems like everyone thinks this is a good idea except me.  I hope they're right.
