After whining about not being covered, McCain cancels press availability!
Too many questions he doesn't want to answer?

McCain cancels avail

Despite the press crowd around Obama, McCain's avail today was the one with more promise to make news:

He hasn't explained what he meant by juggling the timeline on the surge and Awakening (though his staff did the best salvage job possible); whether he meant that Obama was deliberately selling out the country; whether he shares his campaign's grievance with the press; or what he thinks of his staff's genocide-themed attack.

And now he's canceled the avail.

4. he supposedly cancelled it to do an interview with ABC's David Wright instead
After all, ABC can ALWAYS edit out a poor answer if McCain screws up, just as CBS did. Grrrrr.

9. sure doesn't sound like the tactics of a hero, does it?
Remember how the Chimp used to describe Saddam? It was himself that he was describing.

repugs love to live in a different world, don't they?
