Prescott, ARIZONA—In what Senator John McCain is calling the “upset of the 20th century,” his campaign is claiming victory tonight over longtime rival and former governor of New York, Thomas E. Dewey.
“We sure showed them what a comeback looks like,” said a beaming McCain in front of cheering crowd at his outdoor rally cum victory party. “In Chicago, they even printed up the newspapers putting me in the political graveyard. Not so fast!”
The upset was of monumental proportions, as no national or even state poll had McCain ahead of Dewey. It was as if the race was completely off the national media’s radar altogether.
McCain’s top campaign advisor, Steve Schmidt, was far from magnanimous in the victory. “The straight talk express does it again,” he told stunned reporters. “We got more votes than this guy, fair and square.”
In other national election news, Senator Barack Obama was well on his way to becoming the next president of the United States.
