For now, John McCain has rejected Secret Service protection.
We understand that the Straight Talking Senator will try to hold off getting Secret Service protection until after the Republican convention.
Hey, when you know you're the toughest guy in the room you don't need to surround yourself with bodyguards toting automatic pistols to make yourself feel better.
It's a shame that more Undersecretaries to the Undersecretaries to the Secretary Washington "players" can't follow McCain's lead and do away with their Secret Service/US Marshall/Capitol Police/whatever protection.
But then who would make them feel important?
Certainly not their day-to-day responsibilities.
