As of tonight, we can officially call Arizona senator John "F--- You" McCain the 2008 Republican presidential nominee. And the former Arkansas governor, the Rev. Mike Huckabee, has called it a day once the senator pulled a four-state sweep and the comensurate number of delagates, 1,191.
It was a very dramatic comeback for Sen. "F--- You" McCain who six months ago was all but given up for an also ran who may not have made it out of New Hampshire.
But for many Republicans, there is one over ridding issue. The War Against Islamofascist Terror. And because of that, Sen. "F--- You" McCain is the Republican nominee.
No, Sen. "F--- You" McCain is not the most conservative Republican to be the nominee. Many of us have a lot of problems with him. But, he is considerably better than either Laurel and Hardy, er Sens. Clinton and Obama, who the Democrats will at some point nominate for their presidential candidate.
And here is one thing that I hold out hope for.
That as President McCain, he will be more of a conservative than he has been in the senate.
Being the Commander-In-Chief has a way of doing that.
Whether we like it or not, he is our guy and this conservative Republican will be voting for John McCain in November.
