McCain's going to be on 60 Minutes this Sunday. Josh got a preview:

In two interviews before the Army took McCain and 60 MINUTES on the heavily guarded visit to the al-Shorja market last Sunday, the senator said security had improved in Iraq. Upon his return, he also told a news conference he had just come back from a neighborhood one could walk around in freely. The remarks made headlines and he now regrets saying them. "Of course I am going to misspeak and I’ve done it on numerous occasions and I probably will do it in the future," says McCain. "I regret that when I divert attention to something I said from my message, but you know, that’s just life," he tells Pelley, adding, "I’m happy, frankly, with the way I operate, otherwise it would be a lot less fun."

That's just life. And it was just a little "misspeaking" to suggest that everything in Iraq is just hunky-dory. It's all good. It's all fun. See, it's just schtick.

Is this really a man even Republicans think should be at the helm in trying to rebuild our nation from the mess that Georgie wrought?
