On Bailing Out

John McCain seeks an advantage, suspends his campaign - - or shall we say, bails out from- - his responsibilities as a candidate.

So he falls in the polls and earns the mocking of pundits and late-night TV hosts.

And as the financial rescue plan vote faces the Congress, enough Republicans pull a McCain and walk off the job.

Imitating their leader, and our President, who checked out as Chief Executive years ago, setting records for vacation days, weeks, months, years taken while our soldiers are fighting two wars, and as the economy imploded.

Is this a strategy - - bailing out when things get tough?
