"134 men died. Somehow John McCain's life was spared. Perhaps he had more to do."

--RNC introductory video

Update: Not much to say about McCain's speech--the policy part was awful, the parts about his biography and America were strong, so pretty much what I expected. Someone at the Xcel Center really should have been ready with "Stand Up and Fight" from Carmen Jones, though.

Update II: I couldn't find "Stand Up and Fight," but here's "There's a Cafe on the Corner."
