Everything was going smoothly. Democrats and Republicans managed to cast aside their partisan differences long enough to craft a $700 billion dollar bailout plan to rescue the country from certain economic ruin. After hours of intense debate and scrutiny, lawmakers were finally on the verge of a breakthrough.
Disaster, it seemed, would be avoided.
But then in an instant everything changed. McCain went temporarily insane and decided it would be a good idea to "suspend his campaign" in a wholesome attempt to put politics aside and lead the nation through its current economic crisis.

Damn right he is ready to be President!
