Harry "We Have No Idea What To Do" Reid Changes His Mind: Yesterday, the Bailout Would Fail Without McCain's Presence to Rally Support; Today, Now That Obama Has Announced He'll Be MIA, He Decides He Doesn't Want McCain in DC At All

Remember yesterday? Ah, sweet sweet memories of 24 hours past. How outrageously young we were, and how foolishly alive.

But that's in the past. Those days, like the Road Warrior, now live only... in our memories.

The Democrats, only caring about covering their asses politically and not giving a rat's ass about whether the economy went into a depression or not (upside? depressions breed socialists like cockroaches), announced that without the strong support and vote of John McCain personally, they would refuse to vote in favor of any bailout and the bill would be dead.

So crucial was McCain that Reid put out the word McCain would vote for the bailout, in order to get Republicans on board with it. (Lindsey Graham floated a similar rumor -- untrue, as it turns out -- that McCain was on board with the Gang of 20 to try to garner more support.)

But a lot can happen in 24 hours. Specifically, our Brave Leader Obama has decided he doesn't want to show up for his actual job organizing the community of the US Senate.

And so we turn the page.

Now that Barack Obama has decided his fundraising is more important than dealing with the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression, Harry Reid doesn't want McCain (or Obama) around.

Video! Here's Reid, yesterday, demanding McCain come to Washington:

Now that McCain's said yes and, who knows, just might succeed in heading this crisis off, Reid tells him to stay away.
