Emerge's prediction for the "October Surprise"
NBC announced today that that John McCain will appear on "Meet The Press" this Sunday, October 26th. McCain has not appeared on Meet the Press since the campaign declared war on NBC, declining invitations for himself and Sarah Palin from host Tom Brokaw, and granting "NBC Nightly News" anchor Brian Wiliams the last of the "big three" network interviews with Palin.
In August, McCain's campaign manager wrote a letter to NBC News president complaining of comments made by Andrea Mitchell on Meet The Press. You may recall at the Republican National Convention, where Palin attacked the mainstream media, and the crowd started to chant, "NBC! NBC!"
Why now? Because this cat is running scared and he has to deploy his October Surprise. What is it? He is going to throw himself on his sword. He is going to spit out a total mea culpa and then ask for our forgiveness. He is going to say he was wrong for allowing the racism to fester, he is going to swear up and down that Sarah Palin is really "that one" and we just gotta give her a chance, he is going to promise his first born child. He accused Obama of doing anything to win, in this respect, I am thinking John McCain is "that one".
