Well, I guess he didn't need to show up after all....

I hope that the beyond-embarrassing examples of stupidity and egotism on display from the GOP's chosen candidates this week is starting to sink in nationwide. The MSM seems to be inching closer and closer to observing fact, now that the disgraceful "he-said/she-said" reporting of this century is embarrassing them as well.

Whether the public is jarred awake by McCain's blatant eagerness to use a national economic crisis as a photo-op-- struggling American homeowners be damned-- or frightened by Palin's complete inability to form a coherent sentence on even a single national or international issue, hopefully it will mark a turning point in the public consciousness. Hey, I know it's a longshot after eight years of Republican stupidity and corruption, but it helps keep me sane.

And hopefully we'll keep seeing more stories of GOP ineptitude like this:

The Washington Post's Chris Cillizza notes that an ad proclaiming "McCain wins debate!" was already running on the Wall Street Journal's Web site Friday morning. (A screen shot of the page can be seen here.) The reader who tipped Cillizza also saw a second ad that contained a quote from McCain campaign manager Rick Davis: "McCain won the debate -- hands down."

It's like 1984 starring the Three Stooges. All we need now is for McCain and Palin to reach for the same oil company check and bump heads with a coconut sound.
