- Mission Accomplished [✜]
A funny thing happened on the way to the aircraft carrier... This morning, John McCain was claiming credit for getting the bailout bill passed. By his own account, McCain was a man of action, "in the arena" and not just "phoning it in" (even though he was, in reality, just phoning it in). Oh, and later this morning the Republican caucus voted two to one against the bailout package and the stock market dropped over 7% of its value on the day. John McCain's "Mission Accomplished" moment?
