Nobody can endorse a candidate like Georgia Republican Party chairwoman Sue Everhart, who today described John McCain as a politician of heroic proportions.

"John McCain is kind of like Jesus Christ on the cross,"  Everhart proclaimed during the second day of the GOP's state convention.

Everhart later explained that the comparison was based on the amount of pain McCain suffered as a POW without denouncing the United States.

"The comparison is still valid," Everhart said. "He's just like Jesus if Jesus had been more focused on the military aspects of the road to salvation, and had lived long enough to be a cranky old man."
