Thank you Katie!
Thanks to your incredible stupidity and total willingness to shill for the republican party we can finally put two meme's to bed at once.

#1 the idea that McCain has any coherent thoughts on foreign affairs was completely shot down in your interview by the man himself completely botching the time line of the sunni awakening. Pretty lame for someone who is supposed to know so much about the Iraq war he feels the need to lecture others about it.

#2 the idea that the media is biased for obama is now dead with thanks to your creative editing.

Who would have ever thought it would be you Katie that served Mcsame up to us on a platter. I can only come to you with my apologies for all the times I cussed CBS for putting you in that anchor position. Little did I
know at the time the pay off would be so sweet!

Thanks Katie you're swell!

1. CBS' only possible explanation is that they didn't know McCain had made a mistake
When they edited that piece out.

Of course, that answer doesn't make them look so bright, does it.

2. I have no idea what their answer to this will be
But it will be interesting to watch. I predict the other networks smelling blood in the water on this. Sorta like the dan rather thing but worse. There is no defense for this and the original video is out on the net so there's no hiding what they have done.

This will be the story for the next week unless they can cover it with coverage of obamas stops. I think this is too juicy though for the other networks to let it slide. Mcsame the poor doddering fool will be ruined by this because his gaffe will be repeated time after time as a vehicle to go after CBS.

Get out the popcorn cause this is going to be fun to watch.

16. I suspect you're right
Unlike many, I don't think Couric is malevolent really. I just think she was too uninformed to realize McCain had made a major fuck-up.

3. I'll know this is an unavoidable story when Drudge can't keep ignoring it...

...For now, he's on Day Two -- going for three -- of the Andrea Mitchell Blasts "Fake Obama Interview" headline.

Still, you can tell that he hates Obama less than he hated Clinton. The Mitchell story makes the third column, but Bush's "Drunk Economists" story is Column One.

It's truly amazing how, as the press corp hovers, waiting for Obama to split an infinitive overseas, McCain could talk about the Flat Earth Society's contributions to modern progressive science and reporters just go, "Yeah, that's interesting."

He complains about a lack of media interest when that's the only reason he still has a campaign.

4. I dont think it will be the gaffe that drives the story
It will and should be the creative editing of a presidential candidate. If the other networks let that slide then we know for sure we are doomed.

Kadie was after I left, but Yorktown cheerleaders
