That was amazing.

I know, wasnt it? I later found out Countdown showed it, too.

I found it doubly ironic: Every time I hear last night's debate described with boxing metaphors, or hear John McCain's demeanor called "scrappy" or "full of jabs" I always think:

John McCain might think he's Rocky, but he really reminds me of decrepit, old Mickey. So I enjoyed seeing Burgess Meredith as the Penguin twice as much.

And by the way, let's give some love to how well-written and well-acted that scene is. That satire is almost Benchley-esque.
