My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Keep Your Focus

First and foremost, let me say that I do not care a whit for whatever dalliances John Kerry has had with anybody in the last 40 years. They are irrelevant!! And, certainly, there are enough real issues to run this campaign on that a sex scandal is pretty trivial.

However, the media's lack of attention to the whole thing IS interesting. If digging up a thirty year old story that has been vetted twice without substance is news, than this story is news. If a single journalist can make the case that the press corps has done the same diligence with regard to the National Guard story that they seem to be going through for the Kerry/intern story, then I will back off. Until then, the credibility of the press is taking yet another major hit, and the rise of the internet as a major source of news is confirmed.

Too bad that this 'source' of 'news' is Matt Drudge, who has all the credibility of, well, Matt Drudge.
