Huffington Post's Rachel Weiner highlighted for us Obama's dead on impression of Marlon Brando. Now compare it to Obama's reaction to McCain's effort ...

"Governor Palin believes that geography is more important than politics," said McCain campaign spokesman, Tucker Bounds.
No Senator McCain -- a government spending freeze of "everything but defense, veteran affairs and entitlement programs" is not OK.
My suspicion is that no Hollywood producer is involved in the McCain presidential run. I say this for a simple reason -- it's badly orchestrated.
McCain's decision to personally smear Obama with lies and distortions should go down in history as the final nail in his political coffin.
From halfway around the world, it all seems simple. The question is if we are going to keep blaming Washington, Wall Street, mortgage lenders--everybody but ourselves--for our problems.
INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — Republican presidential candidate John McCain said Wednesday the resurrected financial bailout bill isn't perfect but warned...
In the fury of tornado-strength news cycles that allow so little reflection, let's not forget that the Republican nominee went nuts last week.
The very fact of the crisis, and the response to it, provides incontrovertible proof that the founding ideas supporting conservative thought are bankrupt in every sense.
When John McCain announced yesterday that he was suspending his campaign to help everyone solve the economy, and inviting Barack Obama to do the same,...
One would think that some of John McCain's Republican colleagues might actually want to help him become president of these United States, but no: give...
The Obama team has not figured out yet that McCain is waging an asymmetrical campaign, meaning at times he will take a risky, counterintuitive course, just as he did on Wednesday.
McCain has made another desperate gamble that is likely to do him no good and may even go bad. More importantly, he has introduced a major opening into his character and temperament.
Obama is not an expert debater, and if McCain's attempt to skip the first debate does nothing else, it suggests that this is Obama's turf.
It is time to confront an awkward but profound question: whether in picking Palin as his running mate, McCain has committed -- by his own professed standards of duty and honor -- a singularly unpatriotic act.
The other side made a good play (or ploy, if you insist.) Maybe McCain is lying about his motives for making the dramatic return to Capitol Hill but he isn't lying about any facts.
One of the things I couldn't help but think about is how this whole "suspension of things in the face of hardship" has very quickly become something of a trend.
Unfortunately, insurgents in Iraq don't stop shooting at us, or setting IEDs, because our Commander in Chief needs a breather to figure out Wall Street.
If what we've seen from the senator so far is him "focusing" on the economy -- what the hell is he like when he's multitasking?
McCain's appeal is a cynical move based on a genuine economic crisis. Not the economic crisis in Washington -- the financial crisis is in McCain's campaign.
The vice-presidential nominees can suspend their campaigns instead. Biden and Palin, those best, carefully-chosen surrogates, presidents-in-waiting, can stand in for McCain and Obama.
McCain's call is deceitful and frankly desperate. Why? Yesterday he "approved this message" in an ad titled "Mum." It attacks Obama for doing nothing on the economic crisis.
McCain's desire for a break is understandable, given the poll numbers and the seemingly endless stream of gaffes, flubs, and inconsistent statements coming out of his campaign.
It's not that the McCain campaign doesn't want to have this debate; it's that they don't want to have it now. They think it is terrible timing for their side.
McCain can kill two birds with one stone by ducking the debate: get out of debating Obama for a few days, and figure out what his position is on the economy that he helped destroy.
