First the defense was typical: everybody does it. Then the defense was laughable: I didn’t father that woman’s baby, not once.Now the liberal nutcases (one in particular, a real doozy of a dope) is making it upside down:
Don’t yell at me. That is what Josh Marshall, the head dope at Talkingpointsmemo.com is spewing forth.. in fact here is what the idiot who runs the dump says about it,
“David Gregory speculates that the Edwards’ affair may be bad news for Obama. I have a very hard time seeing how Edwards’ affair reflects on Obama. What I do know is that this is another of those cases where there is a tacit but uniform agreement among pretty much all reporters and close campaign watchers not to publicly state the obvious: that this is a perilous development for John McCain. Just as Bill Clinton’s public undressing in the Lewinsky scandal led indirectly to the exposure of several high-profile Republican affairs, Edwards’ revelation will inevitably put pressure on the press in general to scrutinize John McCain under something more searching than the JFK rules they’ve applied to date. I assure you that this dimension of the story occurred to every reporter even tangentially involved in reporting this race soon after the Edwards story hit yesterday afternoon.”
Nevermind Edwards. He lied to cover up a lie to lie to admit to a lie to lie to ignore a lie to lie to lie about a lie and its gonna hurt McCain.
Screams to be repeated: “I assure you that this dimension of the story occurred to every reporter even tangentially involved in reporting this race soon after the Edwards story hit yesterday afternoon.”
Nah.. there’s no media bias.
