Sure, it may be pandering of the highest order, but there's no campaign message we'd rather hear than one approved by Dwight K. Schrute.

During his visit to The Daily Show's guest seat Wednesday night, presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain waited until the final moments of his interview before giving Jon Stewart one heck of a political scoop, naming the Washington outsider—and Scranton insider—as his would-be second banana.

"Listen, I know you've been wondering who my vice presidential candidate would be," McCain said, pulling a piece of paper out of his pocket and revealing his hard-on-crime, harder-on-Toby running mate.

"I've got it written down. Ready? You heard it hear first: Dwight Schrute. Doesn't he do a great job for Michael Scott?"

Aside from the time the power-hungry sycophant (Secret Service code name: Rainn Wilson) unsuccessfully attempted to overthrow his superior, sure. On second thought...he may be perfect.

Particularly since it would all but guarantee Mose as secretary of agriculture.
