guy yelling at kids to get off his lawn? It’s only in retrospect that
we can see that the keep-off-the-grass
period was the McCain campaign’s golden era. Now, he’s beginning to act
like one of those movie characters who steals the wrong ring and turns
into a troll. During that last debate, while he was wandering
around the stage, you almost expected to hear him start muttering: “We
wants it. We needs it. Must have the precious.”
