What Not to Watch
This is being pitched by TPM as an “attack” and a “testy exchange” by John McCain on Barack Obama at today’s Healthcare
Circus Summit. If so, we need to read more Henry James.
Politico, which always has The War Room playing on infinite loop, prefers to run with the box score:
Republicans are watching the clock closely as Democrats have talked for nearly twice as long as they have so far this morning. Before Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn started talking, the time of possession was:
Democrats: about 74 minutes
Republicans: about 37 minutes
We’re with Hitchcock on this: The whole event is a MacGuffin, an empty plot device to move the story along.
