What Alterman said. The attempts to gin up pseudo-scandals involving Obama and SOHNEHO were bad enough, but attempts to tie Obama to the Blagojevich scandal seem to consist of guilt-by-association without even the association, unless “living in the same city” counts. And to this we can add the spectacle of pundits using arguments that could come straight from Obama birth certificate troofers — sure, there’s no evidence whatsoever of any wrongdoing, but somehow Obama is just never answering the right question in the right way.

It’s going to be a long 4 years for media watchers, and the even more frightening thing is that had Clinton won the media almost certainly would have been even worse.

…And in related news, the wanker of the week is certainly Ed Rendell.
