Patton Oswalt is known for his comedy, not his politics. But on his website last week, the Comedians of Comedy founder noticed, perhaps presciently (and with a surprisingly small amount of tongue in his cheek), the subject of America's next great political novel: John McCain.

But McCain, someday, is going to make a great novel. He doesn't want to be a part of it, but it'll be one of the most readable things to come out of this dark spiral we've been going through for eight years. And worry - the spiral isn't terminal. At the last minute - just like America's always done - we'll pull ourselves away from the spinning blades. There's going to come a day when we won't. That day isn't now.

So, Obama's going to win.

But all I can think of is McCain.
