So I'm sitting in the basement holding room of some dark, dreary hall in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., waiting for John McCain to finish fundraising so we can go on to Columbus, Ohio, the next stop on his world tour, and Marc Ambinder is typing away across from me (yes, the Atlantic had two reporters with the McCain campaign today, because no one is going to accuse us of shorting McCain just because Obama has brought peace to the Middle East and walked across the Sea of Galilee while whistling Hatikvah) when I realize that Ambinder has a broken wrist. A broken wrist -- and yet he still blogs! Incredible.

As soon as I get back to Washington, I'm going to put him in for a commendation with H.R.
