JS: That speech! Oh my God!

KO: All right, calm down…he’s still on the stage. You’re going to be…you can’t…you can’t boo a candidate while he’s still on the stage the night he won, Joe. Do I have to teach you everything about politics all of the sudden?

JS: Thank you, Keith. Thank you. I tell you, one think I can teach, and we were all talking about it here. It is absolutely remarkable…

KO: Don’t read the speech?

JS: That at this moment…yes, please. If this is your introduction to America in 2008, do not have your head looking straight down into a speech that Howard, Howard Fineman, what’d you say it looked like?

HF: It looked like every advisor he ever had had given him one paragraph?

GR: One sentence…

HF: One sentence…but he read them all.

GR: But he dropped them on his way to the podium and re-sorted them in random order.

Ouch.
