Reporters traveling with John McCain are slightly miffed that the senator hasn’t had any face time with them in, well, a month and three days (But who’s counting?)
So, when Straight Talk Air departed Tampa today, a dozen reporters chanted, “Bring Mac back! Bring Mac back!” (Some reporters expressed concern that chanting at takeoff could be against FAA regulations. Others joked that they could be taken away by the secret service agents on board.)
The chanting lasted under a minute as staffers in the business cabin smiled and then promptly closed the curtain between business and coach. No word on whether McCain heard the chanting. But, alas, he never made it back.
