Mini-Me McDonnell

Maybe it's the beer, but there's something about the tiny, tiny venue and audience that strikes me as hilarious. Doll-house like. Like he's speaking to a gathering of Lilliputians. But I've gotta hand it to McDonnell: the "minority party response" is an impossible, thankless job, and he's done as well as anybody could--which is to say, he hasn't utterly humiliated himself. So far. If he'd just speak a little more slooooooowly, he'd be all set.
