Don’t Fall for It, Mac


This closing to David Ignatius’ column on John McCain seemed almost calculated to appeal to McCain’s vanity:

What’s damaging the McCain campaign now, I suspect, is that this fiercely independent man is trying to please other people — especially a Republican leadership that doesn’t really trust him. He should give that up and be the person whose voice shines through the pages of his life story.

McCain obviously should be himself — but if he shoots a raspberry to the base in the next few days, I’m going to blame Ignatius.
