Last night was a better night for the Republicans than tonight.
Let’s see if I can criticize McCain’s constant invocation of his POW experience without driving an angry mob to chant “USA! USA!” outside my window: Might we agree that by having every single surrogate tell the tale of McCain’s imprisonment, torture and resistance in hushed, dramatic tones, he has allowed the story to be robbed of some of its power?
I wish I could offer more specific observations, but I’m going to have to read the text in the morning. I will confess that I fell dead asleep twice and probably missed about 10 minutes. It wasn’t entirely my fault.
Anyway, it’s over. He’ll get his bounce. And on we go.
