The Mac is Truly Back

John McCain just clinched the GOP nomination for president in 2008.

Eight months ago, who would have thunk it?

He cobbled a devil of a comeback on $1,000 event budgets, a downgraded Straight Talk Express, and pure, irascible irrepressibility, with an assist from the indecision of many conservative voters.

If you assume (which we will for the sake of this sentence) that Obama will be the nominee, and concede that Obama is the clear favorite in that match-up, take heart that John McCain has shown an uncanny ability to rise above, paradoxically by virtue of his being the underdog.
