John McCain, starting to hit his stride:
Thousands of motorcyclists greeted Republican presidential candidate John McCain with an approving roar Monday as he sought blue-collar and heartland support by visiting a giant motorcycle rally.
"As you may know, not long ago a couple hundred thousand Berliners made a lot of noise for my opponent. I'll take the roar of 50,000 Harleys any day," McCain said.
Sure, it's pandering. But it's effective and it doesn't cost the taxpayer anything. I'll take it.
