JOHN MCCAIN SUSPENDS CAMPAIGN, SELLS HOUSES

September 24 2008

New York, NY – John McCain has made the unprecedented decision to suspend his Presidential campaign and go back to Washington to help deal with the unprecedented economic crisis gripping the country. The senator has chosen to return to his offices in the Capitol in order to help build a consensus for the current administration’s economic proposal. It has also been revealed that the McCain family has been forced to put two of their seven homes up for sale, which in part provoked this surprising move.super rich house

“Tomorrow morning, I will suspend my campaign and return to Washington after speaking at the Clinton Global Initiative. I have spoken to Senator Obama and informed him of my decision and have asked him to join me,” McCain said. “I am confident that before the markets open on Monday we can achieve consensus on legislation that will stabilize our financial markets, protect taxpayers and homeowners, and earn the confidence of the American people.”

McCain will be flying back to Washington on his private jet in order to report to work on time tomorrow. He declined to answer questions as to whether or not his personal financial difficulties played a role in this decision.

“McCain has suffered a great deal of damage to his reputation as working class joe, something he worked hard to build up,” said Scrape TV political analyst Gabriel Kinsey. “That of course has had the wind taken out of its sails after he revealed that he didn’t realize how wealthy he was. From what I’ve heard though, this was largely motivated by his own personal situation. After his wife informed him that they would have to sell some of their homes, McCain was quite distraught. Though he’s never actually been to the houses in question, it brought to light the crisis that is facing ordinary Americans. McCain suddenly understood what it was like to lose your home.”

It is reported that the sale of the two homes will fetch somewhere around three million dollars.

“John McCain is dedicated to the betterment of this country. He fought for this country, was a prisoner of war for this country, and now he will act again in the best interests of the country,” said a spokesperson for the McCain campaign. “John McCain understands the working man. John McCain is a true patriot.”

There is no word yet as to whether or not Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin will continue to campaign stops. “Alaska is fine, Sarah doesn’t need to do her day job right now,” continued the campaign spokesperson.foreclosed home

Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama has proclaimed that he will not return to Washington and will continue his campaign for President, stating in part “It's my belief that this is exact time when the American people need to hear from the person who in approximately 40 days will be responsible for dealing with this mess and I think that it is going to be part of the President’s job to deal with more than one thing at once."

Obama said that Friday's scheduled debate will go on with or without McCain. "Well that's a win isn't it."

It has also been reported that McCain has dropped out of his commitment to appear in an episode of MTV Cribs.
