Damn it, Mac.

The bailout passed the senate and goes to the house. Call your house members. This crap submarine needs to be defeated. Unfortunately, McCain backed it. I know he's real pragmatic at times, and that often is good, but not here. Obama voted for it, no surprise. Biden also voted for it. Carl Levin voted for it.

Shockingly, Stabenow got this one right. Whatever her reasons, I give her a thumbs up. Tom Coburn disappointed me the most on this. I expect more from him.

Jim DeMint tried to be the hero. I'll give him credit for that, but it wasn't enough. The jokers Reid, McConnell, and Bush made sure this got through.

Again, time for Pence, Hensarling, Blackburn, and McCotter to pull off one more miracle vote in the house.

McCain pulling out of Michigan

John McCain is pulling out of Michigan, according to two Republicans, a stunning move a month away from Election Day that indicates the difficulty Republicans are having in finding blue states to put in play.

McCain will go off TV in Michigan, stop dropping mail there and send most of his staff to more competitive states, including Wisconsin, Ohio and Florida. Wisconsin went for Kerry in 2004, Ohio and Florida for Bush.

McCain's campaign didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Republicans had been bullish on Michigan, hopeful that McCain's past success in the state in the 2000 primary combined with voter dissatisfaction with Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm and skepticism among blue-collar voters about Barack Obama could make it competitive.

McCain and his running mate Sarah Palin spent the night after the GOP convention at a large rally in Macomb County, just outside Detroit. The two returned later last month for another sizable event in Grand Rapids.

But recent polls there have shown Obama extending what had been a small lead, with the economic crisis damaging an already sagging GOP brand in a state whose economy is in tatters.

A McCain event planned for next week in Plymouth, Michiigan, has been canceled.
