I think my favorite part of this segment is when the host says, "This is John McCain we're talking about!"

John McCain is a magical war shaman, as all Republicans are, and the idea of someone saying he hasn't actually led a large organization or developed war policy is like, well, telling them there were people who had problems with Tim Russert's credibility.

Second is when the host gets her Serious Face on, leans in, and talks about the special insight that John McCain has - particularly into torture.

Just go get him some doughnuts already, for God's sake.
