Did you catch "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" last night? Despite Stewart's best attempts to grandstand all over the Senator, John McCain was still able to drive home his important message about the war on terror. While Stewart stuck to his liberal talking points, appeasing the crowd, McCain stayed the course, outlining not only the contempt that Al-Qaeda and the Taliban have for America, but the consequences of failure in Iraq.
We know what the McCain knows, that a pull out date defined by Congress is really picking the day the enemy wins the war. We also know that the war has been mismanaged, but we are there, and we must do something. We have a direction, a strategy in the region now, and the troops deserve our support. And as McCain tried to tell Stewart, just yesterday the Taliban has claimed that bin Laden himself is orchestrating attacks in Iraq and Afghanistan. (These points never make the evening news)
In my opinion, McCain looks more composed, confident in his positions, and comfortable with the camera than ever before. Even with Stewart's cheerleading and using the senator as a vicarious assault on President Bush, Stewart was unable to pin the war's blunders to McCain. If yesterday was any indication of what the campaign will look like, then we are in for a steadfast and long battle. In the end, we know McCain will prevail.
