Deus Ex McCain-a

Ladies and gentlemen, put away your pens, paper, keyboards, etc., our problems in Iraq have been solved. Apparently, while the so-called "problem solvers, wonks and pundits" were busy overcomplicating the situation in Iraq, all that was needed was a little straight talk. Here is the Straight Talk Expresser himself (via Brendan Nyhan):

For all the national attention surrounding John McCain’s two highly anticipated, protest-ridden commencement speeches in New York last week, the Senator actually saved some of his best material for the crowd that gathered on Friday behind closed doors in the back of the Regency Hotel.

In a small, mirror-paneled room guarded by a Secret Service agent and packed with some of the city’s wealthiest and most influential political donors, Mr. McCain got right to the point.

"One of the things I would do if I were President would be to sit the Shiites and the Sunnis down and say, 'Stop the bullshit,'" said Mr. McCain, according to Shirley Cloyes DioGuardi, an invitee, and two other guests. [emph. mine]
So straight. So talked. So bound to succeed.

Whew. That was a close one too. I had my doubts, but it looks like its onward to victory!

Next Up: McCain employs his "Stop the Bullshit" doctrine to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
