Well, in Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows, McGonagall casts three Patronus and sends them off as messengers to the other Heads of House to tell them what is happening.

"‘Come. We must alert the other Heads of House. You’d better put that Cloak back on.’She marched towards the door, and as she did so she raised her wand. From the tip burst three silver cats with spectacle markings around their eyes. The Patronuses ran sleekly ahead, filling the spiral staircase with silvery lights, as Professor McGonagall, Harry and Luna hurried back down.– Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"

McGonagall’s Patronus is described for the very first time and the unique part of the description is the spectacle marks around its eyes. These are the same spectacle markings McGonagall has around her own eyes when she transforms into a cat.

So basically, her Patronus is herself. Therefore, the only thing that can protect McGonagall, is McGonagall.

How freaking amazing and awesome is that?
