    not a liberal scholar.  One of many reasons we lose is we forget that you also have to score points with sucker punches and "bag of hot gas" one-liners.  You need Kerry and Reid and others to hit specifics, and you need the Stewarts and Lettermans of the world to make it funny.  Not just one of either, but both are necessary for broad reach.

    Letterman turning that into a nerdy brawl would have defanged what he did - let Olbermann and others hit specifics; you need someone to just say what a lot of folks just kinda think, and give them that last little push to say to themselves, Dave's right, this guy sounds like an idiot.
