McCain Jokes About Demanding Recount on Tonight Show

John McCain's presidential dreams just won't die.

Our fearless senator took the stage of The Tonight Show last night, and joked with host Conan O'Brien about demanding a recount of the 2008 presidential election.

"I land in the airport today, LAX, and I'm walking through and everybody said, 'I loved for you. I voted for you. I voted for you!' I should demand a recount, you think?"

No. John; we don't.

Here's our guess: Either the Maverick happened to bump into one of the six people in California who actually voted for him, or tourists from a red state.
