Letterman Catches McCain Two-Timing With Couric

David Letterman was already giving John McCain a hard time for his suspended campaign when he spotted the GOP nominee with fellow CBS personality Katie Couric on the network feed.

Bill Clinton on Obamamania and the Economy

The former president gets a little hot under the collar in giving Jon Stewart his take on the financial collapse (without any mention of the deregulatory zeal of his own administration). He also explains why he thinks Obama will win, and why it’s not about whether people love Barack Obama but whether people think Barack Obama loves them.

‘Daily Show’: Baron Von Moneypants

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson’s proposed bailout carries a price tag of $700 billion, a staggering figure that CNN has helpfully translated into terms that every American can understand by consulting the McDonald’s (apple) pie chart.

Clinton on 'The View'

Bill Clinton: Hillary Would Have Been the Best VP Pick ‘Politically’

Former President Bill Clinton braved the deceptively comfy-looking couch on the set of “The View” to sit for a chat with Barbara Walters and her deceptively bubbly-seeming quartet of co-hosts, who are suddenly in the catbird seat in terms of landing the big political interviews after their headline-grabbing session with John McCain on Sept. 12.

‘Democracy Now!’: Sen. Sanders, Scheer on the Bailout Boondoggle

On Monday morning, as the aftershocks from Wall Street’s worst week in decades continued to rock the national and global economy and the Bush administration scrambled to contain the fallout with a bailout plan that could cost American taxpayers over a trillion dollars, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Robert Scheer and Dean Baker joined “Democracy Now!” host Amy Goodman (above) to sort through the rubble and speculate about what might come next.

Naomi Klein: Palin = ‘Bush in Drag’

Here’s a sound bite for the ages: “The Shock Doctrine” author Naomi Klein was one of the panelists on the Sept. 19 episode of “Real Time With Bill Maher,” and when the conversation inevitably turned to Sarah Palin, Klein pronounced the GOP VP nominee to be “basically Bush in drag.”

Palin: Ahmadinejad Aiming for ‘Second Holocaust’

During a campaign stop in Blaine, Minn., on Friday, Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin lamented that neither she nor Hillary Clinton would be able to attend next week’s anti-Iran rally in New York City and vowed that she and GOP presidential hopeful John McCain “will not waver in our commitment” to prevent Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from obtaining nuclear weapons and potentially starting “a second Holocaust.”

Blair Shows His Charmingly Imperialist Side

Tony Blair went to “The Daily Show” to talk about politics but found himself defending the Iraq war much more than he might have liked. The former politician, who still seems desperate to sell the nobility of invading and occupying Iraq, also managed to include some of the tired 9/11 rhetoric from Rudy Giuliani’s presidential campaign.
