John McCain is refusing to talk about foreign policy in Mississippi because he'd rather refuse to talk about the economy in Washington D.C.

At the bipartisan White House meeting that Mr. McCain had called for a day earlier, he sat silently for more than 40 minutes, more observer than leader, and then offered only a vague sense of where he stood, said people in the meeting.

There's one thing and one thing only that John McCain's demonstrated since Wednesday: he is the biggest liar in the goddamn world. He lied about suspending his campaign, he lied about the importance of his presence, he's leading the GOP in lying about the efforts to pass a bailout bill and I'm halfway certain he stole the Ferragamo loafers he wears around, too.

The first words out of his mouth at the debate tonight will be, "I'm glad my opponent decided to show up to the debate he didn't want to have." Then he'll talk about how he opposed the war in Iraq from day one and how his African father taught him the meaning of character. Hey, he spent five and a half years lying to the Vietnamese to protect his country. Are you gonna attack a veteran?
