173. it was silly picture. the fucking false puritanism around here is ridiculous
And I say that as a strong Obama supporter.

Reporters and candidates basically live with each other for months. So at the end of the day, the notion that they might have a drink together on the plane is neither shocking nor worthy of comment. And the fact that a picture get taken of someone making a silly face is not an indication that they have a drinking problem or is even a little tipsy in the photo.

We (meaning Obama and his suppporters) have won. The other side hasn't been very classy in defeat. WHy on earth you'd want to lower yourself to their level is beyond comprehension.
