Leave us picture an Alaskan Eliza Doolittle – dead moose on her back, shotgun in one hand, hockey stick in the other - instead of a Cockney flower girl with a dirty smudged face. She is sequestered in Arizona at the McCain McCompound. For several days, she has endured being poked and prodded and grilled and filleted by the Republican Elite Guard for tomorrow night’s big Date with Destiny.

“All right Sarah! Say it again!” Henry Higgins (played possibly by Karl Rove) urges. (Meanwhile, he’s thinking – why can’t a woman be more like a man? – as HH famously did in My Fair Lady)

The rain in Spain falls mainly on McCain,” gamely responds Miss Thing.

“No!! That’s not the line! It’s ‘the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain.’ Try it again!”

Deep into the night they go, as sunset falls on the painted desert and the clock strikes ten, then eleven, then midnight. And Thursday October 2 eventually dawns ~ the lines are drawn in the sand ~ and billions of eyes tune in to their television sets at 9 p.m.

Ding dong! The bells are gonna chime.
