    It’s interesting that, during his appearance on Greater boston two weeks ago, Graham bemoaned the lack of humor in political humor, especially the liberal brand. But Graham is guilty of the same.

    Typical talk radio BS. Slander, accuse, whatever and then claim it was all a joke.

    By the way, Dan, how in the world was this guy allowed on “Beat the Press” with you two shows ago? He made at least two false statements during that episode, one of which you corrected and the other which Callie Crossley called him on.

    Frank Rich a “media hysterics” member? Keller has had a bad month. When this is over the only people proud of the McCain campaign will be the neocon loons who ran it, and those that admire them.
