Through the looking glass

Nothing makes sense.

See if you can find anything in this pile of crap that makes any logical sense at all (aside, of course, from Johnny Mac not talking to the press. That actually makes perfect sense):

Later, his campaign’s senior policy adviser Doug Holtz-Eakin issued a statement blaming Democrats and presidential rival Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) for the bill’s defeat.

“From the minute John McCain suspended his campaign and arrived in Washington to address this crisis, he was attacked by the Democratic leadership: Senators Obama and Reid, Speaker Pelosi and others,” Holtz-Eakin said. “Their partisan attacks were an effort to gain political advantage during a national economic crisis. By doing so, they put at risk the homes, livelihoods and savings of millions of American families.”

The adviser also blamed remarks delivered by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, chastising President Bush’s free market economic policies, for pushing Republicans away from the bill.

Actually, it was President Bush’s free market economic policies that got us into it and it was the bailout itself and the total lack oversight that drove the Republicans away from it.  It is the continuing adherence to free market policies that prevented the Republicans from voting for it…

“Barack Obama failed to lead, phoned it in, attacked John McCain, and refused to even say if he supported the final bill,” Holtz-Eakin said. “Just before the vote, when the outcome was still in doubt, Speaker Pelosi gave a strongly worded partisan speech and poisoned the outcome. This bill failed because Barack Obama and the Democrats put politics ahead of country.”

So they had a deal until Mac showed up, then it fell apart. And on Saturday, he literally phoned it in, which his advisers told the press was the right move.
