Holy hell, we are rogered roundly.
McCain can "get away with" being a confused old man because he's been around forever and our press corps is a bunch of sycophantic suck-asses. That, in a nutshell, is what Chuck Todd explained to Tim Russert this morning.
And over on Fox, it got even better. Brit Freakin' Hume dismissed his confusion as a "senior moment" but still the trip was a "net plus."
Good grief, do I have to state the obvious?
On what fucking planet is it okay for our press corps to carry on and swoon like schoolgirls and dismiss legitimate concerns of fitness and acumen for the job he is asking us to hire him for?
And by the way, I don't want anyone prone to senior moments that severe anywhere near the football, m'kay? Senior moments aren't a quality to dismiss - they are a quality to disqualify.
