Ladies and gentlemen, the next U.S. vice president, John McCain

You gotta feel for the poor guy -- his big moment in the local sun now immortalized on video in a blog archive that his grandchildren will view.

In front of all those people at a Democratic rally for the Barack Obama-Joe Biden ticket Wednesday, he was supposed to introduce the senator from Delaware.

But, alas for his hopes of any kind of meaningful job in a new Obama administration, the wrong words came out. He could have a job somewhere in Congress; not much thinking going on there most of the time.
