McCain rally scheduled for motzei Shabbos


With the media buzzing interminably about John McCain’s still unnamed (and reportedly undecided) running mate, Michael Cooper of the New York Times found meaning in the timing of a campaign rally on Saturday:

It turns out that the Saturday rally in Senator John McCain’s roll-out tour of a vice-presidential running mates will take place in the early evening. Could it be a clue, given that one of the finalists on Mr. McCain’s shortlist, Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, is an Orthodox Jew who does not work on the Sabbath?

Doors to the rally, at a stadium in Washington, Pa., are supposed to open at 3 p.m. Sundown is not scheduled until 7:55 p.m. It would be a long time to ask people to wait – but the campaign has scheduled John Rich, a country music star, as a warm up act.

Only time will tell….
