Evening links.

* McCain is still hinting that he won’t show up at the debate tomorrow. (This campaign has become so insane, I can hardly stand it. What the hell is this? Are they really serious?) What we’re seeing now is exactly the consequence of Obama’s warning not to inject presidential politics into delicate legislative negotiations—McCain’s fake campaign suspension has done nothing but derail the process.

* He’s not too busy to be on the teevee, of course.

* And of course this is all Obama’s fault for not agreeing to the town halls. John, I’m begging you, just shut up.

* Barbara Boxer doesn’t hold back in her anger over what’s happening.

* Sarah Silverman makes her bid to save America with the Great Schelp.

* Al Gore blows my mind with a call for civil disobedience against the building of additional coal plants.

“If you’re a young person looking at the future of this planet and looking at what is being done right now, and not done, I believe we have reached the stage where it is time for civil disobedience to prevent the construction of new coal plants that do not have carbon capture and sequestration,” he said at the third annual meeting of former President Bill Clinton’s initiative, which arranges partnerships between the very rich and the very needy.

* And here’s why: Global carbon emissions jumped 3% in 2007.

* On a more optimistic note, Obama supports NASA.

* Obama and Biden will be coming to Greensboro on the *only day for the next month I’ll be out of North Carolina*. Damn you, Obama! There’s a reason for this visit: North Carolina looks to be right on the brink of flipping. More at Facing South in two parts.
