NBC’s Meet the Press, even with the erratic Brokaw, was back on top of the stack last week, and this is another opportunity for McCain to be heard.

We get to hear Tom Ridge assert the gravity of the mistake he believes McCain made by not selecting him as his running mate.

And Rahm Emanuel might gleefully trumpet that he doesn’t even have to run conservatives as Dems to win this season.

The media’s polling and editorializing/reporting is starting to get to people.

I’ll review the shows here tomorrow.
