Don't Call it a Comeback!

John McCain is back! The Senator woke up this morning to the realization that there's 22 days until the election, and he's somewhere between 5-10 percentage points behind front-runner, and occasional terrorist-befriender, Barack H. Obama. (Not to mention roughly 100 electoral votes shy of the magic 270 needed to secure victory.) So today, in a speech in Virginia, McCain unveiled his comeback. Either that, or he suspended not coming back.

"Now, my friends, let me give you the state of the race today (I can't believe he said "race!") and some straight talk," McCain said. "We have 22 days to go. We're six points down. The national media has written us off. Senator Obama is measuring the drapes and planning with Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid to raise taxes, increase spending — take away your right to vote by secret ballot and labor elections, and concede defeat in Iraq — and concede defeat in Iraq. Our troops — my friends, I won't concede defeat. I'll bring our troops home with victory and with honor."

To which, some bigot in the crowd most likely shouted out the N-word.

And yesterday, at his campaign headquarters in Arlington, VA, McCain actually said that he would "whip" Barack Obama's "you know what" in the next debate.

To which, some bigot in the crowd most likely shouted out the N-word.

Statistical forecasts are just one more thing in the long list of things John McCain just doesn't get.
