Taking His Ball and Going Home

McCain has hurt feelings over the bumbled interview yesterday that is all over the corporate media and blogosphere. And so, like the experienced, level headed, potential leader of the free world-- when the going gets tough, the tough run and hide.

Yesterday, Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds appeared on CNN for an interview with Campbell Brown. Brown was tough on Bounds, refusing to let him spout typical campaign talking points. She repeatedly pressed him on Palin¹s foreign policy experience and qualifications, asking him to name one decision that she made as commander-in-chief of the Alaskan National Guard. Bounds was unable to do so.

Today, CNN's Wolf Blitzer revealed that because of that tough interview, the McCain campaign has canceled the senator's appearance on Larry King Live tonight:

The McCain campaign said it believed that exchange was over the line and as a result the interview scheduled for Larry King Live with Sen. McCain was pulled. CNN does not believe that Campbell's interview was over the line. We are committed to fair coverage of both sides of this historic election.

Well I don't think we can give CNN that much credit. But this was indeed a great shot across the bow. And it looks like dangerously-flawed McSame can't handle it.
