The McCain camp calls out — by name — another reporter (this one from TIME) and goes to far as to quote her snide response when provided with information which contradicts her storyline. Ouch. And the Post’s media critic isn’t any better–neatly ignoring that the basis of the McCain ad in question was the Post.
And then, yowser, the McCain camp dares the Post to call itself “not credible.” I don’t know about the campaign against Barack Obama but I could watch this duel for awhile.
Hard to argue with this: ” Really, if you were trying to discredit the traditional media it would be hard to do better than they’ve been doing themselves.”
The Congressional Republicans will never have a better advertisement for keeping Democrats’ majority narrow than Charlie Rangel. As John McCain says about his intentions for the earmarkers in Congress, the GOP needs to make Rangel “famous.”
Peter Robinson is right about the power of humor — and come to think of it, doesn’t the funnier candidate always win? (Kennedy funnier than Nixon, Reagan funnier than Carter, Clinton funnier than George H.W. Bush).
“That’s Obama first” — which side is using that catch-phrase?
Palin adds Iran to her talking points — with a big assist from those who managed to nix a bipartisan rally against Ahmadinejad. Really, what would McCain-Palin do without such helpful opponents?
This is a readable and cogent explanation of where we are and how we got to the financial mess: there is plenty of blame to go around, including “consumers and voters on Main Street” who wanted plenty of cheap credit (and mortgages they couldn’t afford).
