1. The band plays "Everyday People." Why?
There is a blue one who can't accept the green oneAn ode to racial progress, so, I think the "Tonight Show" band is saying: It's so great that you lost! Scooby dooby doo-bee that you lost! Or is it just that we all need to get along, to make nice now that the election is over? We got to live together.... and it will be so much easier because you lost!
For living with a fat one trying to be a skinny one
And different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo-bee
Oh sha sha - we got to live together
2. McCain makes that old, old slept like a baby joke.
3. McCain is looking lively and jovial. What else can he do? He must play the good sport, and his interest now is to preserve and build his reputation for history.
4. And he ought also to help Sarah Palin. What did he say about her? (It didn't make the highlight reel above.)
"She inspired people. She still does. And look, I'm — I couldn't be happier with Sarah Palin. And she's going back to be a great governor, and I think she will play a big role in the future of this country"....I'd say that's too bland, lukewarm, and Pawlenty-Jindal diluted. He owes her more.
McCain said Tuesday night that his party "has a lot of work to do," and he predicted that new leaders like Palin would help carry the party into the future.
"I really believe that Sarah Palin is amongst some, like Tim Pawlenty and Bobby Jindal, the governor of Louisiana, there's a group of young Republican governors and — mainly governors, but also some in the Senate — that I think are the next generation of leadership of our party," he said.
