John McCain and Barack Obama both appeared before the nation's newspaper editors yesterday. The putative Republican presidential nominee was given a box of doughnuts and a standing ovation. The likely Democratic nominee was likened to a terrorist.
Yet another stark reminder of the vapid venal topsy-turvicality of the Villagers of the corporate "librul media," so-called, and what we'll be up against in the General. Endless Obama Osama Orange Juice Gate Versus Good Guy War-Daddy McCain. Don't these shills and gossip columnists have an unspeakable war crime to cheerlead for somewhere? And, yes, I'm aware that the piece I'm quoting appeared in The Washington Post. And, yes, McCain is still going to lose.
