And his acceptance speech is an instant classic:
... I was delighted to see The Atlantic include me in its list of the nation's 50 most influential political commentators. I'm #44 on the list, but using Beck/Malkin/Teabagger math, and aerial photos from 1997, I've decided that I'm actually in the top five.In this cantina, Steve, you will always be Numero Uno. Congratulations!
