I bet Cliff Schecter is terribly bitter since this was lifted from his column, without attribution. Since I am sure you intended to attribute:
 
Schecter, Cliff, "Important Questions for George Stephanopolous to Ask John McCain This Sunday," THE HUFFINGTON POST, 18 April 2008.
 
They are, however, good questions, which I am reasonably sure will never be asked of McCain.

OTM, thanks for pointing that out. We don't approve of cutting and pasting stuff without attribution (as per the rules) and we will take the appropriate action.

I'm reasonably sure it won't rain tonight. What does that make me?

Oh, my lord! If Cliff Schecter had an ounce of political savvy, he'd know that any politician, let alone Republican McCain, would pray to be asked those questions!

One of those live weather net volunteers on local television who has a junior meteorology set and calls in rainfall amounts? How would I know?

Matthews has been fascinating since the Chuckie and Georgie Show, arguing that Clinton is going to win Pennsylvania by a huge margin, perhaps 20% or more. This seems to be running against the conventional wisdom and (most of) the polls, but he is from Pennsylvania and has deep political ties to Pennsylvania. So, we have an intuitive v. empirical debate, somehow very fitting to this race. The outcome should be interesting, and, if Matthews is correct, I expect he will be even more insufferable.
 
My own hunch is Clinton +4-6, but I wouldn't bet a stale pack of peanut butter crackers on it.
 
If Matthews is incorrect, a good opportunity to discuss the cold but valuable objectivity of raw data and sophisticated analysis will be presented to all of us.

This is a little off the subject of Friday's show specifically, but I am really disappointed that Kirsten Powers no longer subs for either Brian or the Judge when either one is out. The last time I can remember her doing it is early February and there have been at least ten shows since then where there is no co-host when one of them is out. I liked the way she really challenged them (and the callers) on their thinking and when they said anything that wasn't entirely factually accurate regarding the Democrats -- things that they would normally let slide past one another. I know that the two guys like to pretend that they disagree on a lot of topics, but that's not really the case. They're both pretty conservative.

Well I think they disagree more than you think they do, but I agree with your main point. Kirsten isn't exactly a scintillating radio personality, but the show is much better with her than with only one host.
