DG and many others have compared the convention to the Nuremberg Rally, but I would compare it to a Nuremberg Rally organized by Leo Bloom and Max Bialystock.

OK, two things:
First, not that it changes anything, but Charlie Pierce wasn't just commenting on how white the convention was, he was speculating as to whether this would be the last GOP platform written exclusively by old white people, and offering that he thought that about the last one also.

And secondly, I thought of you when Jon Stewart sat in Colbert's chair and did one of his trademark bits about the election, like everyone has been publicly calling for him to do, and wouldn't mention Hannity by name. I guess CBS (see BS?) was fine with the publicity and ratings such an event would produce but not with some FOX blowback?
Excellent podcast yet again, thank you very much.
