Falling Up

As of 11:00 PM, they're calling New Hampshire for Clinton, and raving about her "comeback" as much as they were razzing after Iowa. Most embarassing moment in the coverage: Anderson Cooper on CNN with (insert gagging sound) Ralph Reed, Donna Brazile, and William Bennet as "expert commentators". If they were being paid by the distance between accomplishments and pretension, they'd be on as comic relief like Bob Ueker talking about baseball.

We haven't been offered expertise like this since William Kristol got hired by the Times (with a misattribution in his very first column) and Lynne Spears got a book contract to write about Christian parenting.

I'd be very to-err-is-human about all this if they weren't being paid so damn-- much-- money.
