I Love It!
The Mayor of Denver just called the Democratic Convention "a giant slumber party for journalists." This was on a NY Times video called carpetbagger at the convention, in which a "journalist" interviewed other "journalists" and officials about what the convention is for reporters and pundits. Without even a touch of irony, they all said they were there to see each other so much more than report on what's happening. Why limit the slumber party to the convention? They're all so dazed or bludgeoned or idiotic or dumb that they never report on anything but trivia anyway. Anything complicated like issues? Fuhgeddaboudit. Why should they bother their pretty little heads? It's only their effing sacred duty to the republic. But that was lost somewhere along the way.
