Alex Witt: Peter, I want you to take a listen to what John McCain said this weekend in his radio address and get you to react. Peter, listen up.

Alex Witt: Well actually that was The Joker. So we're not gonna go there. There's no parallel there that we want to, uh, make any sort of, uhh... you know where I'm going with this. That was bad.

On a related note, I saw "The Dark Knight" Saturday night and there's a good reason it broke the all-time weekend box office record. Christian Bale makes a bad ass Batman and Heath Ledger did a phenomenal job portraying the insanity of McCain the Joker. I highly recommend it for comic book-genre fans and non-fans alike. Senator Leahy's cameo alone is worth the price of admission.
