I was going to do the Pedobear "too old" thing, but it turns out he's only 61.

He'd be a pretty awesome President.  Maybe he'd settle for Veep.  Warren/Feingold?

ikanreed: Wendy's Chili: Still not giving Politico traffic.

I can't say I blame you, but you don't click CNN links or anyone else who does lowest common denominator "narrative" tripe, right?  Or is this some hypocritical thing?

I can't recall the last time I clicked a CNN link, but their bullshiat is the result of incompetence, not malice.

Politico is a Republican operation, owned by a Bush fundraiser, operated by a Bush advisor, and edited by the lunatic son of a John Bircher. They exist to muddy the waters of politics and draw people's attention away from real policy debates.

The recently departed Joe McGinniss started this whole genre of "inside baseball" political coverage back in 1968. He detailed how the Nixon campaign was focused more on messaging and managing public perceptions than it was on discussing real policy. For example, many Americans came to believe that Nixon had a secret plan to win the Vietnam War.

Politico now uses McGinniss's approach to political reporting to do the very thing McGinniss was trying to expose: the peddling of bullshiat to warp people's views of reality. It might be funny if it weren't so depressing.
