Over at LGM We've Tagged McCain "World's Butchest Passive Agressive Drama Queen"

And the more you grasp that fact the more comprehensible lines like this are:

“I know that many of you have noticed, but it’s not my style to simply ‘phone it in.’ ”

McCain's mavericky, lone hero shtick is really, really, slipping. He's gotten to the point where he actually is insecure enough to try to feed the audience their lines. He's starting to remind me of the sceen in Soap Dish when the failing soap queen, played by Sally Fields, can only pick herself up out of her depression by going to low rent Malls in New Jersey and having her publicist and producer (Whoopi Goldberg) pretend to be an ordinary citizen/fan who just "happens" to recognize her. Despite the fame of this scene--its referred to as "having a soapdish moment" I couldn't find a clip. But the more you watch John "the Maverick/never Miss Congeniality/many of you have noticed my style" the more you realize you don't have to see Sally Fields throw her fur over her shoulder and sign autographs for her fans as she proceeds down the escalator--you can just watch John McCain beg for another closeup.
