Shorter McCain: Ignore the fact that Republicans have been in charge for the last eight years and I've agreed with them 90% of the time. I'm the change candidate!

My kudos to anyone who could sit through the whole speech. I couldn't make it personally. And of course, AP laps it up.

Not merely a Republican. Not merely a candidate. John McCain cast himself as a leader for all Americans, regardless of party or status.

After several days of Democratic bashing by his supporters, the Arizona senator struck a nonpartisan stance and promised that he wouldn't be bound by political party in the White House as he accepted the GOP presidential nomination Thursday before thousands of Republican loyalists.

"We are fellow Americans, an association that means more to me than any other," McCain told the Republican Convention, deriding "constant partisan rancor" that causes Washington gridlock. He rejected those in Washington who he said "work for themselves and not you."

"I don't work for a party," he declared. "I don't work for a special interest. I don't work for myself. I work for you."

Gag. I guess fact checking would be WAY more than we could expect the largest news service in North America to do.
