What Steve Said

Steven Benen sums up the horrendous fawning over "President" McCain on "Meet the Press" yet again:

For those keeping score, this will be McCain's 20th appearance on a Sunday morning talk show since Obama's inauguration. That's an average of 1.5 appearances a month, every month, for over a year -- more than any other public official in the country.

And if the McCain/Lieberman/Graham wank-umvirate are considered I'd bet they've been on about three-out-of-four Sundays.

And who, exactly, is John McCain? He's the one who lost the 2008 presidential race badly, and is now just another reactionary conservative senator in the minority. Gregory will apparently ask for McCain's thoughts about health care, despite the fact that the senator's thoughts on the subject appear to fall somewhere between wrong, petty, and ridiculous.

And, worse yet, Gregory will not even attempt to challenge any of grandpa's ridiculous lies.

If it's Sunday, it's an alternative reality. Save it for Harry Turtledove.
