Jerry and Joe Long, over at 23/6: Some of the News, Most of the Time, smack Brian Williams upside the head (carefully avoiding his trademarked septal deviation) over his WWTT (What-Would-Tim-Think) musings about the really superfantastic media coverage of the Democratic National Convention.
Let's put aside that Brian never asked himself WDILMASPP (Why Did I Let Military Analysts Spout Pentagon Propaganda) or that through their passive stenography Brian and Tim et al. helped lose quite a few fathers and mothers whose children won't be getting NBC paychecks.

What would Tim think? Gee Brian that's a toughy...he'd probably think what you think and Stephanopoulos thinks and Gibson thinks and Brokaw thinks and Couric thinks and Blitzer know...somewhere safely inside the parameters of debate. Maybe for divergent views there'd be a round-table with David Broder drooling fossilized idiocy and Jon Meacham spouting biblical idiocy and Matalin and Carville encapsulating idiocy at the genetic level.

Meanwhile, Richard Cohen likes the Joe Biden pick because he saw John McCain dance with Jill Biden “on the terrace of the sublime Villa d’Este on the shore of Italy’s stunning Lake Como.”

If Hunter Thompson were alive he would kill himself again.
