On CNN a little while ago, Jeffrey Toobin threw a monkey wrench into the media narrative that persists in crediting John McCain with having “suspended” his campaign:

Late Update: The Obama camp tells TPM Election Central that the McCain campaign is directing TV stations across the country to start airing its ads again beginning Saturday, which would mean McCain will be off the air all day Friday only. It also suggests that McCain isn’t waiting until the bailout plan is approved to resume campaigning.
