Ack! Messy typos. Sorry.

Excuse -- I'm getting used to a flat, smaller laptop keypad and am not doing so well, plus I tend to transpose letters...Sorry!

Does it matter what Mitt says? If you disagree with Obama, you get to vote for Romney. If you like Obama, you wouldn't consider anyone that the GOP is running. We're past the point where it matters if anyone "likes" the candidates.

Capehart...works for WaPo...thinks Condi Rice is an exemplar of diplomacy and good Republicans. Oh, my. Primo work as National <i>Security</i> adviser, eh?

Is he talking about the same Condi that never could have imagined airplanes being used as missiles against the US? Even after several warnings given to her by CIA about that very thing? Even after ger boss had to stay on a US military vessel due to threats of airplanes being used as missiles at the Italian G8 meeting? Okaaaay.

Really?

This seems to be part and parcel of how the mocern press corps protects the "acceptable" politicians. They make horrible mistakes, yet, somehow, never have to pay for them even by being reminded of their horrible mistakes. Odwn the Memory Hole.

I think there have been quite a a few aticles even in the US media about thissi itneresting trend among the MCM (Mainstream Corporate Media). Applies to banksters as well, abetted by both media figures and political figures.

BLoggers and commenters have been noting this for years; nice to see it noted among the more "valued" press.
