I have an ongoing fascination with the weird unspoken rule in the media that politicians are never liars. They are "inaccurate" and "misleading" but never, well, full of it, even when the last few weeks has been an expo-quality product demonstration of how the media lets everyone get away with making stuff up (themselves included.)
And so.... of course. Of course the media is salivating over getting to say "Weiner" and talk about sex as much as they can because sex! Icky! Aaaah! Of course Republicans want to destroy Medicare. Of course Sarah Palin is in a way, doubly full of it, in that she's clearly using this sarcastic, blatantly obvious "road trip" to imply she's running for President before she doesn't and then wipes all the Tea Party's tears with the money they just gave her.
