Jon absolutely hit the superdelegate thing on the head -- although they are worth more like "just" 20%, it's pretty clear they could determine a winner in a remotely close race if they wanted to, which runs in contrast with the spirit of proportional delegates.

The non-partisan point is also correct. We'd rather not have McCain at the moment, but he definitely would have outclassed Bush in his two terms (he wouldn't have made as drastic of tax cuts, at least). It's just a shame for him that he's running against a bigger phenomenum in Obama -- because the Republican neo-cons are going to place the blame on McCain's non-hackery rather than credit Obama or blame Bush's many failures.

And, although he's obviously a warmonger, I don't think McCain would have outright lied the country into war the way Bush/Cheney did. And without those lies, there would have been no way for the Iraq war to happen.

I've watched the entire hour, the only thing I can say that a lot of Jon's irony was lost on Larry.

i think larry, like me, was distracted by the jarring abscence of a studio audience or even laugh track. i think i even caught jon thinking " wait! there should be laughter there!"

Why can't the rest of the media be this witty, candid and insightful? You know, the "real" news?
