I bet John McCain wishes he still had a presidential campaign right now, so he could pretend to suspend it in protest of the Senate's version of the economic stimulus package, which John McCain just hates so much.
To find out why, let's take a peek at the email he sent to the remains of his list today…
Our country does not need just another spending bill, particularly not one that will load future generations with the burden of massive debt.
A Republican bitching about spending? No way! This guy, he really is the original maverick. Breakin' with his party. Takin' his lumps. Gotta respect him for that.
I appreciate the discussions President Obama is having with my Republican colleagues, but the time for talking has come to an end and we must now begin some serious negotiation.
If there's one thing we learned last year, it's that John McCain hates talking. Besides, it's time for serious negotiation. You don't need talking to do that. Anything else, Senator?
With so much at stake, the last thing we need is partisanship driving our attempts to turn the economy around.
Absolutely, and that is why John McCain created this friendly bipartisan internet petition attacking "the Democrats and the Obama Administration."
If Barack Obama does not sign that petition personally, it will simply be proof of his partisan selfishness.
