It's pointless pointing out the points that people like to make commenting on Web sites, but this one, from the CBS.com video of McCain's appearance on Letterman the other night, made me laugh:

GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
