The MAC is back.
Senator John McCain is now calling himself "The Mac" (hat tip: Captain's Quarters). It's surprising that I predicted this nearly a year ago:
A lousy idea that's been floating around the internet lately is the propect of a McCain-Lieberman ticket in 2008. McCain is a long-standing favorite candidate for a party switch, probably because his big-government streak makes him the current MAC (i.e. a Minimally Acceptable Conservative, or the least Left conservative that is still considered "mainstream") Daddy of the Republican Party.
