Gotta Get Away From Me

Ben Smith notes that with McCain's press corps eager to ask some followup questions about McCain (a) not knowing when the surge happened, and (b) accusing Barack Obama of seeking to deliberately lose wars for political gain his campaign decided to cancel his press availability. What Smith doesn't note is that this cancellation comes hot on the heels of 48 hours worth of non-stop whining about how the press is paying too much attention to Obama's trip and ought to focus more on McCain.
