McCain the Remake, Part 2
A while back, I blogged about what I thought was the very, very beginning of John McCain, revised. This was the man who'd write the memoir and say the mea culpas and insist if it had only been for the town meetings and if only he'd relied on his higher instincts the election would've gone so much better and he wouldn't have to completely rebuild his reputation. James Fallows (via, who else? Andrew Sullivan) points out that McCain on SNL was a signal that he'd accepted defeat. I hope he not only accepts it but lives it. And if he does, the show was probably step 2 of his 20 step rehab. If he doesn't lose, though, I'm never watching SNL again, even though my husband assured me no persuadable voters were watching.
