Ron Fournier has disappeared, though I'm sure he'll be back soon to fluff. In his absence though, the AP has some rather plain -- and stinging -- analysis for "The Ol' Cadavarick":

Republican John McCain has maneuvered himself into a political dead end and has five weeks to find his way out...

as the bailout plan appeared ready for passage Monday in the House, McCain bragged that he was an action-oriented Teddy Roosevelt Republican who did not sit on the sidelines at a moment of crisis.

The implication: that he played a critical role in building bipartisan support for the unprecedented bailout....

Within hours, however, the measure died in the House mainly at the hands of McCain's own Republicans.
