McCain’s Already Crowned Himself President

president-mccain.JPG In his new ad touting his health-care plan, John McCain dubs himself "President McCain" at the ad’s outset. In big block letters.

I guess the formality of that quaint anachronism we used to call an election isn’t really much to worry about for Republicans anymore. After all, there’s now the Roberts Court waiting in the wings to take care of it for them if the voters refuse to play along.

Perhaps the people suffering under the delusion that they’re actually in the process of deciding who the president will be may have something to say about all this.
