"Holding their nose, they're gonna have to take him." -- Roberta McCain, the 95-year-old mother of Sen. John McCain, explaining that Republicans are going to make her son their nominee whether they like it or not. The elder McCain suggested that the not-quite-as-elder McCain deserves the support of Republicans because he "worked like a dog" to get George W. Bush reelected.
