McCain = Jimmy Carter?

Short but fascinating commentary by Thomas Defrank on McCain's latest Hail Mary pass against shifting polling numbers.

OXFORD, Miss. - At a difficult moment in the Vietnam War, crusty Republican Sen. George Aiken of Vermont offered a novel solution - simply declare victory, and leave.

John McCain resurrected Aiken's playbook Friday - except he declared defeat, and left.
Based on what we have seen of so far, I have to believe the theory that Keith Olbermann expressed on Letterman the other night - that it was a desperate attempt by McCain to screw up the debate schedule so that the Biden/Palin debate would end up being canceled.

was on Olbermann's show after the debate tonight and it was plain that he intended to stand back and let her hang herself with her own mouth.
