Going Easy

Would you like another pillow...Mr. McCain?

At a luncheon for the editors hosted by the Associated Press, AP Chairman Dean Singleton quizzed Obama about whether he would send more troops to Afghanistan, where "Obama bin Laden is still at large?"
"I think that was Osama bin Laden," the candidate answered

and McCain?

McCain's moderators, the AP's Ron Fournier and Liz Sidoti, greeted McCain with a box of Dunkin' Donuts. "We spend quite a bit of time with you on the back of the Straight Talk Express asking you questions, and what we've decided to do today was invite everyone else along on the ride," Sidoti explained. "We even brought you your favorite treat."

McCain opened the offering. "Oh, yes, with sprinkles!" he said.

Sidoti passed him a cup. "A little coffee with a little cream and a little sugar," she said.


McCain got a standing ovation -- an honor Obama did not receive when his turn came two hours later.

The question is, how can we accurately gauge the merits of a candidate when the very people that are supposed to report about the candidates are clearly biased towards on or the other? Well, I supposed when the press is invited to a BBQ, you can't blame them.

Can you?
