And then the McCain campaign went all hissyfit pissy and cancelled Senator McCain's appearance on Larry King Live. (ThinkProgress has the video of Wolf Blitzer making that announcement.)
Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face. Apparently the Senator is so accustomed to having the media wipe his nose (I cleaned it up.) that anything remotely difficult or challenging is enough to get him all pushed out of shape.
It seems to me that the best strategy for going forward is to just keep pissing him off until he blows up and stomps off during one of those debates. The prospect is delicious.
