It would be pleasingly counterintuitive to declare that McCain, at this, his lowest moment, is now poised for a miraculous recovery. Indeed, I've been itching to write exactly that all through his recent free fall. But, alas, the contrarian impulse has its limits. Though it's not impossible to conjure a narrative in which McCain wins the nomination, doing so requires half a bottle of Maker's Mark, followed by a nitrous-oxide chaser.
