The Etch-a-Sketch

Dorothy Rabinowitz:
Things won't be different this election season, Mr. Romney should know. The race card will be played even more energetically this time around, despite such proof of racism as white America's overwhelming support that put Mr. Obama into the presidency in the first place. Mr. Romney could do worse than a presidential run in the spirit of the Mr. McCain we see today—a man free of useless caution. Of course, the senator now has a fat target: the four years of the Obama presidency. But so has Mr. Romney.
I support any and all efforts to turn Mitt Romney into a crazy bitter old liar nobody likes.

Who is "the senator" in that extract? Presumably neither Obama, Romney nor McCain, all of whom are given the title 'Mr'.

It's an odd tic. There's a "Sen." in the article, but only one. Maybe she's pretending she's writing for The Times.

The McCain today whereof she speaks is free not only of useless caution -- he lost that 4 years ago -- but of sense and class, and indeed of any recognisable personality.
