What was more annoying Tuesday - the media covering the Democratic primary in Pennsylvania, or Laura Bush prancing around my town hosting The Today Show in the morning and speaking at the 92nd Street Y in the evening - just after we had to deal with the Pope's traffic nonsense around here over the weekend?
Close call, but I have to go with the media.
Their clear hatred of Hillary Clinton is pretty astounding to witness. It wasn't enough that she won the most votes - you know that old-fashioned way we used to have in this country for deciding elections. No, she had to win decisively.
Oh, she only won by 10 points - well, she should drop out now.
Listen, come November, I will gladly pull the lever for Barack Obama if he is the candidate - as looks more and more likely. But until the nomination is finally decided by Democratic primary voters and not the Chris Matthews of the world, I wish they would all just shut the hell up and report the results and not try to drive the story line.
It's almost as much fun as the time when George W. Bush lost the presidency by 600,000 votes...but somehow Al Gore was the one who had to concede.
Those media folks - they really have their eyes on the ball, don't they?
