McCain's refusal to surrender

It's got to be a sweet moment for John McCain, who eight years ago lost the South Carolina presidential primary to George W. Bush in one of the dirtiest campaigns in recent memory. Engaging in that dirty campaign was David Beasley, then the governor of South Carolina, who this year played a significant role in the campaign of Gov. Mike Huckabee.

Gotta say, McCain's 90-something-year-old mother -- whom he just called ma-MAH -- looks fabulous.

McCain just made the point, much trumpeted in recent days, that the winner of the South Carolina primary for the last 29 years has gone on to be the party's nominee.

"I'm running to keep America safe, prosperous and proud," McCain is telling his supporters. His speech is going all Reaganesque; it's all about making America a man again. Making people feel "proud" again. Your blogstress would argue for humility.
