So I am about to start listening to this week's "Meet The Press". It usually gives me heartburn, but this has to be some kind of record. In the opening seconds.
MR. RUSSERT: And he calls for an “enduring relationship” with Iraq that would keep American forces there “beyond my presidency.” What now? With us, decorated Vietnam veteran, 2004 Democratic presidential nominee Senator John Kerry; and decorated Vietnam veteran, 2008 Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain. Kerry and McCain square off. A debate: Should we leave or should we stay?
How can Russert use the same words? How can he draw a favorable comparison? It's as though he thinks that fraud is worthy of being mentioned in the same breath with McCain.
