Even George Will & others have finally conceded this fact.

Just the other day, Will noted the frightening truth in his column this week:

John McCain furiously, and apparently without even looking around at facts, said Chris Cox, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, should be decapitated. This childish reflex provoked the Wall Street Journal to editorialize that "McCain untethered" -- disconnected from knowledge and principle -- had made a "false and deeply unfair" attack on Cox that was "unpresidential"
But the more one sees of his impulsive, intensely personal reactions to people and events, the less confidence one has that he would select judges by calm reflection and clear principles, having neither patience nor aptitude for either.
and lastly:

It is arguable that, because of his inexperience, Obama is not ready for the presidency. It is arguable that McCain, because of his boiling moralism and bottomless reservoir of certitudes, is not suited to the presidency. Unreadiness can be corrected, although perhaps at great cost, by experience. Can a dismaying temperament be fixed?

And now today, McCain must have caused Republicans across the country to gasp as he conceeds that he can't handle learning about how Wall Street works and also debate the "inexperienced" Obama too.

And don't forget, we would he fit in nap time?

It's really pathetic. McCain must also think that the Wall is open and could collapse Saturday morning and that the American people are stupid.

He must also think that the debate is not critical for the American people.

Perhaps if McCain actually knew something about the economy and were able to multitask and drop the political grandstanding, he could contribute to his Congressional obligations and debate Obama on a Friday evening.

...and since McCain's Campaign First stunt failed, he now is forced to debate Obama.

His campaign just announced that he has time to debate Obama, which is nice considering all of the campaigning McCain has done in the last 48 hours.
