McCain to Obama: It’s On, Man

John McCain, announcing that with his victory in Wisconsin he will be the Republican nominee for president, takes it right to the Democratic frontrunner:

Will we heed the appeals for change that ignore the lessons of history?…I will fight every moment of every day in this campaign that Americans are not deceived by an eloquent but empty call for change that promises no more than a holiday from history….Our purpose is to keep this country free, safe, prosperous, and proud.

He went on to a tour d’horizon of the world’s promises and threats — the election results in Parkistan, the departure of Castro, and the conduct of Hugo Chavez. Rhetorically, McCain has stepped up his game to a remarkable degree. If he keeps it going, this is going to be a very impressive presidential bid, win or lose.
