Letterman with Brian Williams

This is just a fascinating segment on David Letterman.  Letterman, as most know, has been after McCain for a week – McCain bailed out on a Letterman segment.  But to have Brian Williams on this talk/comedy show brings up issues that would really be funny if they were not so serious. Brian Williams notes with […]

McCain/Palin – Unstable/Unable

This is the week that was.  John McCain could not have had a harder time.  Every day, and sometimes twice a day, McCain changed his position and philosophy on the economy.  At times he sounded like he might be in early stages of oldtimers disease. John McCain, that once bold and brave warrior, has been […]

Obama and Biden on 60 Minutes

These are true statesmen. Senator Barack Obama is ready to talk policy – he does not have to attack John McCain for making the most ludicrous choice for Vice President since that guy in 1856.
