Even as news is spreading across the internet and television about the defeat of the bailout bill in Congress and continued economic turmoil John McCain is getting ready for a massive Hollywood fundraiser on Wednesday.
You may remember that McCain pulled a media stunt last week when he claimed to have suspended his campaign to rush back to DC to deal with the economic problem. Of course, along the way McCain stopped off for an interview with Katie Couric, an opulent dinner with Joe Lieberman and lots of down time at his Beltway apartment.
The fundraiser sponsored by the McCain-Palin Victory California Leadership team comes only a few weeks after McCain harshly attacked Barack Obama for holding a fundraiser in L.A. "with his celebrity friends." I am guessing that when McCain says "maverick" he really means hypocrite.
