John McCain has done it. In one fell swoop he has made it clear that he will take the fight to the democrats. He has demonstrated that he is not afraid of strong women. Not only did he marry one, he nominated one.
The Obama campaign was so surprised that they had to come back to the microphone after their initial salvo of disdain to even recognize the historic nature of the appointment. It is instructive to note that they were so maddened by the choice that it has taken over the conversation just one day after Obama's supposed "speech of a lifetime".
It is clear that it concerns the democrats greatly. Remember the old saying: "methinks thou dost protesteth too much". Their wild disputation in the blogisphere makes this obvious.
